Pretty great tour. Don’t expect to see too much of the local Wildlife, at least in September. I saw a few fish an Otter and some Seals. Still a lot of interesting infos and places and overall really friendly and easy going people. Well worth your time and your money imo. :)

we hoped for a bit more. its good for kids especially. we only stayed in close vicinity to the harbour and it was more of a nice boat ride than wildelife watching.
