This tour is awesome for adventurers, but rest assured, it is not a calm champagne cruise! You're in the middle of an exciting adventure and the sea can be quite rough. However, you can be sure that Capt'n Dan - a navy commander in the 2nd worldwar - and Dennis always take care of your safety. On our way to the islands we were lucky enough to see a group of orca whales following us through the waves - this is unbelievably rare. Reaching the Channel Islands, we anchored at a calm spot to enjoy a beer, a tasty self-cooked lunch and great self-produced rose wine. You could watch the sea lions hanging out on the island and swimming around close to the boat and watch the pelicans circling above us. This place is protected and uninhibited and therefore still very natural, raw and beautiful.
Overall we had fun, but there wasn't much to see except for when we stopped to feed the fish. The fish were exciting for my young daughters. The boat was cool and themed in a fun fashion.
