Great tour! Worth every penny, the Captain takes his time to make sure everyone gets to see the views. The staff is very informative about the area, many sights to be seen! A bit breezy but beautiful none the less! We spotted Eagles and plenty of seals on this trip. I highly recommend it. We brought binoculars and my kids found them helpful. I wish I had some cash as there was a tip jar on gateway exit.
Great operation! We took a trip on the Acadian in Frenchman Bay. We saw bald eagles, harbor seals, peregrine falcons, and a harbor porpoise! We also learned a great deal about the history and ecology of the area. A wonderful tour with friendly and knowledgeable staff. We will be back & the next time we will take the longer puffins & whales tour!
