Cpt Troy and Daniel were awesome. We had a great time. We rented the whole boat for less money than the ships excursion. They picked us up and brought us back to the town. We saw eagles, sea lions and LOTS OF WHALES.

This is their peak season. Good chance they are all booked. You will have to check with Capt. Chris on cost. Usually it's a 6 hour charter with a light lunch. Very good experience.
