This is a very professional organization, from the provided survival suits to the boat and tour guide and I highly recommend this tour operator.

Today we an excellent day, we saw Grizzly Bears, Eagles, seals, and Orcas, our guide Leif was very knowledgeable, fun and patient, and very willing to go that extra mile. At the bears, Drew, and Anthony were very calm and happy to have everyone, they were also very helpful. We would love to do this again.
