We saw some amazing wildlife and beautiful scenery pointed out by our tour guide and boat operator. Unfortunately, we were sent out on a boat with small children who were not well supervised by their parents and poorly behaved. The tour is very long for small children and when they got bored, they detracted from our experience greatly. We had a coupon from our Northern Lights book for another larger company that we regretted not using. Of course, we don't know whether or not we saw more wildlife on the small boat. Ask as you reserve whether or not you will be sharing a boat with younger children. When the boat only seats 12 people or so, your experience will certainly be affected.
