Dad came to Alaska to visit for a few days, knew this was a must do. So glad we did it, we got to see whales, sea lions, tons of birds and a couple of otters. Great trip!

The Atmosphere was not the greatest. Tables with uncomfortable chairs. Babies crying all over the place. The Official announcing seemed to forget what she was saying. The memory Picture with their Boat Buoy looked cheap with missing letters. I enjoyed the trip it was just...More
