Captain John and his crew were awesome! We got to see a bunch of wildlife on our trip and learned a great deal. Captain John's crew were very attentive to passengers' wellbeing. They thoroughly answered questions and did their best to make sure everyone had a good experience. This was by far the best tour I took during my trip and it definitely ranks as one of the best tours I've taken in a long time.
