Great and cold experience!!They provided us a warm uniform, goggles and gloves to be put on your personal ones. It was a very good experience out there! Big waves and a snow storm made it more unique and fun. Of course we got a bit wet but the scenario is breathtaking and you get to see many eagles. The duration is enough, I was exhausted and cold at the end. I suggest warmer stickers for feet and to cover very well all your face.
