Captain Fred has years of experience and shares his knowledge and interesting stories throughout the trip. The sound system throughout the boat is excellent, so you're not straining to hear him. He gets within a quarter mile of the impressive Columbia glacier and patiently waits there awhile for good iceberg calving opportunities. We didn't end up seeing any whales that day, but the captain took his time to search for them and didn't rush the tour like some boats on a tight schedule. We probably had 30 people on our cruise--a small & comfortable number. The friendly staff took each family/couple/group's picture in front of the glacier using our own cameras, at no extra charge. The water in Prince William Sound was calm, presenting no problems of sea sickness. Also nice is that this is a non-smoking cruise. We liked our Major Marine cruise last year in Seward, AK (6 hr to Holgate Glacier), but this one was even better with the comfortable, smaller boat and personality of the captain! What my 8 yo & 14 yo daughters liked best was getting to steer the boat!
