What are great your. We have been lucky with the weather and with the wildlife. We saw all kinds of wildlife including killer whales and humpback whales. The Columbia Glacier was awesome. Would highly recommend this tour.

Wow. So glad we chose the Lu Lu Belle over the ther option, largely due to reading Trip Advisor reviews. The boat is smaller and more agile than the other option but still large enough to be very stable in the water. Captain Fred was...More

What an incredible day out on the Lu Lu Belle. The boat itself was absolutely gorgeous, made with old teak wood. It was clean, warm and charming. The tour was delightfully run. Its a smaller tour boat than the others and you never felt like...More
