The wait was long due to boats only being loaded half full for Covid, but lots to do while waiting. Cafeteria has excellent waffles and other goodies. Scenery is breathtaking and boat crews our informative and safety oriented.

Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. We enjoyed the time on the water on an unusually gorgeous day. We could have done without the political undertones. There was clearly an agenda that the tour guides wanted to get across. Spirit Island was beautiful!
