Saw so much wildlife on this tour, loved it, very informative too. Had a lovely morning. The man also recommended to us a place to go see elephant seals which we did afterwards, and that was an unforgettable experience.

Our Naturalist, Austin was fabulous! He was very knowledgeable about both birds and sea life. Happily answered questions with good humor. We saw both seal and otter babies. A great day on the water.

I wouldnt think a drizzle would be a problem...we have taken it when the air was damp, but came prepared. They are always prepared, so even if you are not they will take care of you!
