Captain John and his crew were awesome! We got to see a bunch of wildlife on our trip and learned a great deal. Captain John's crew were very attentive to passengers' wellbeing. They thoroughly answered questions and did their best to make sure everyone had a good experience. This was by far the best tour I took during my trip and it definitely ranks as one of the best tours I've taken in a long time.

My main motivation was birding. We were the only serious birders on the trip. The crew was very enthusiastic and pretty successful in trying to spot my target birds. That being said, it is not a bird oriented trip. From a birders perspective too much time was spent looking at Ok view of whales and hte stops ofr birds were pretty short.

Excellent adventure, saw Orca’s, Humpback, Stellar Sea Lions, Sea Otters, Harbor Seals. The glacier was amazing to see. Also had special drinks made from glacier ice fished out of the bay.
