I really enjoyed the tour. A good 9 hours and our two very friendly guides reported in great detail about the grizzly bears. Overall we were very lucky to see 4 bears and well hidden 2 very young bears. On the way we could see a whale cow with calf and sea lions. Our guide Jim was very attentive there too and gave us time to observe everything in peace. Lunch is more of a snack, but perfectly adequate. Conclusion: Cheap is definitely different, but if you compare performance and costs objectively, it's definitely okay and the experience itself is just indescribable; an unforgettable event. I'm very happy to have experienced it, would definitely do it again and highly recommend it!!

Communication prior to tour fine, planning of the day also ok (long day with a number of stops along the way on the boat for whales and 3 hours of bear viewing from platforms), but guide very poor in terms of information during the day. Lucky with 5-6 grizzly bears, eagle (and other birds) and therefore number of whales.

It was just a dream! A tour worth every penny. We saw 9 grizzlies, humpback whales, orcas and sea lions. Simply impressive to face the animals in their natural environment. Our guides Jim and Can were really great, they told us a lot about the way of life of the animals. Big thanks to the team for this unforgettable experience! Ralph and Tina
