I found this tour recommended on cruise critic. I emailed Dave and he responded right away. He met us at our ship at 7:30 am to start our tour. He took us to Herring Cove where he spotted Eagles out to us all the way there. He is very knowledgeable about the area since I believe he has lived there for almost 30 years. It seemed like he knew everyone in town. He took us to the totem pole area ( Blight state park I believe). He even knew the carver of the totem pole being demonstrated. He was a great friendly guy with tons of information about plants and fish. The tour we took was a little over 3 hours. My group was 4 people and it was my husband, my son (13) and my mother. We all enjoyed it and Dave is prompt, reliable, and full of information. I think this is a great alternative to the cruise tours.
