Scenery was amazing and the boat stops for a good amount of time at each of the sites to make sure everyone has a good chance to seeing them. We were lucky enough to see some whales and our captain took a detour to see them up close, which was magical. The boat itself is super modern, really comfortable, plenty of room inside and out on the deck, and good selection of drinks and snacks at decent prices. Bathrooms also surprisingly nice for a boat! The staff were all great, really friendly and knowledgable about what we saw, and were able to give us detailed information on the whales we’d seen. Would 100% recommend this tour. It also costs the same to book through Get Your Guide as it does to book directly with the company, so would recommend booking this way to avoid having to go to the kiosk.

Extremely interesting activity. The space on the boat was comfortable and the stay at the points of interest sufficient.

In addition to penguins, we even saw whales. Great trip at the end of the world

outstanding. This tour seems like a small hidden. truly a relaxing last day.

Great trip. Outstanding food! Well worth the time and the money!
