This was the second time I have gone out on the Scania. It is a "real" Alaska experience, compared to being on a large boat with tons of people. If you want a more personalized experience, then definetly book with Adventures in Alaska !! Both times I felt as if I was going out on a boat with my own family. They were very professional while making you feel at home. The last time I went, we saw a pod of whales bubble netting. It was AMAZING !! Captain Alan is very knowledgable about where the whales might be and in which direction they are moving. I am going back to Alaska with my niece and nephew this June again and wouldnt even think about booking with anyone else. Can't wait !
