Saw plenty whales, harbor seals and sea otters. We were able to be on the decks to get good pictures. The captain would maneuver the boat to get the best views. Visited with my adult daughter.

Sorry for the delay in answering: I haven't been here for awhile. No, they don't ride with you. This was a drive yourself type of adventure, but they do supply you with plenty of map info and suggestions about where to go.
