|We really enjoyed this port adventure. The whale watching portion was on one of the smaller boats with only around twenty or so people on board. As we sailed the waters looking for whales, we passed numerous large boats crammed to the gills with people. We were so glad we weren't on one of those! We saw numerous whales, sea lions, it was fantasic. And the scenery itself is so beautiful. |
We had a nice amount of time at the glacier, which we really enjoyed as well. Throughout the port adventure our wonderful tour guide (she was a local middle school science teacher ) had the kids performing a variety of science experiments. Our son was 14 at the time, and I was worried he would be a little old for this, but he loved it. He was the oldest child on board, but beacuase of that he was assigned some of the more challenging tasks and was made to feel really important by our guide.
I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you have children.
