Saw a few whales. Were taken out near an island that had hundreds of sea lions sunning on the banks. This tour was booked through Princess Cruises. They provided transportation to and from ship. Great guides on bus and on tour. Food was available.

the boats are very stable and you will have the opportunity to go in deck or stay inside. I don't think anyone has ever been sea sick on these boats.
