6 hour cruise that took us 60 miles out. Beautiful scenery. Saw orcas, but unfortunately the surrounding boats got a closer view. The seals were resting and playing on the rocks. We also saw the puffins. The captain always spun the boat so everyone got a nice view. Great lunch was brought to you. The smell of the baking cookies made your mouth water. Speaking of - bring your own beverage, or you will have to buy. Read Less
