Yes that trip had a bit of everything, from warm, sunny days with spectacular mountains to almost gale force winds. We enjoyed the group's camaraderie and enthusiasm for everything!

Yes Heather- on top of the seals and sea lions, the birds and the flowers, the whale was certainly a bonus! Hope to see you out on Misty Isles again.

I have to admit that I was very uneasy about this trip at first: darkness and the deep ocean sounded kind of scary. But our tour guide Christine (a teacher by profession) was so calm and taught us what to do to be safe and...More
