2017 was indeed a great year for iceberg touring! And you are so right about the importance of noting that iceberg sightings here along the northeast coast are typically from mid-May to mid-July. Many thanks for your kind review!

No icebergs, no whales, but we saw lots of dolphins and the boat crew were very experienced, but still infatuated with the mysteries of the sea
