I like the concern for our safety and enhanced viewing of the marine mammals we encountered. They showed respect for the animals by not getting to close.

Cancelled due to Covid 19 rescheduled for May 2at 2pm. When I called to reschedule it was nice to speak to a person who booked my reservation for a later date. Still waiting on a confirmation though because the quarantine may last longer. At this point it’s day by day. God bless everyone and help us survive Covid 19.
