We took the early morning trip, and although a little foggy we still were able to see many seals, sea otters, birds and wildlife. We enjoyed the 1 1/2 hours on the water and appreciate Junior's knowledge and hospitality.

Our 3 generations loved this cruise. The boat was quiet and comfortable. Captain Joonya was knowledgeable and thoughtful. We saw lots of otters, seals and birds. We hope to take his sunset cruise next time. Highly recommended.
