An awesome experience from start to finish! A seal came on board as we were leaving the anchorage and our guide fed him some fish so we could have some pictures. After swinging by the seal colonies island, we spotted a humpback whale and got to see it dive a few times. On our way back we saw several dolphins and a huge pelican even came on board to say high. Drinks were served throughout the voyage and the meal at the end was an absolute feast! Excellent tour and a great value for the money. Highly recommend!

We saw superb wildlife - dolphins, a whale, seals, and pelicans, and flamingos - and enjoyed an incredible set of seafood snacks and champagne. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kind.

Even though we didn't see any whales, it was a great trip. The tour guide was great and so was the food. We would book the tour again at any time.

Cruise was excellent with a great crew ❤️❤️snacks and refreshments were also in abundance.,,would definitely book with them again

Recommended, relaxed tour with a German-speaking guide. Tour agreed with the information provided. Gladly again.
