Everything was professional, clean, and a perfect balance of amazing, informative, and fun. The experience seeing the Kenai area was breathtaking. The boats, bathroom, etc. were clean and well maintained. The system was friendly and professional at every level from food/drink service to binocular check out. We were very pleased and impressed with the captain's informative and entertaining narration. We learned a lot from this trip and really appreciated the science context. As we left we heard a young guy with ear plugs and tattoos behind us say "every time that dude got on the intercom I got smarter." We couldn't recommend this trip enough. The boats seem to get closer than 300 feet to the whales, but I just hope they are only chased down for a short while each day.
Beautiful cruise with sightings of three orcas, one humpback, seals, otter, puffins and more birds. The up close view of a glacier was awesome. Commentary of captain was excellent. Good meal and freedom to move around boat. The perfect weather also helped!
We had a blast. The water was a bit rough but that Captain and crew made sure we were all comfortable and prepared. Of all the things we did in Alaska we agreed this was by far our favorite thing.
Captain and crew were amazing, very competent, professional, and accommodating. Ship was very clean and comfortable. I cannot recommend this cruise more highly.
The cruise was well worth the money. We got to see may animals on the wild and the staff was amazing!
