Extremely safe and powerful Boat did bring us 150km around to see many animals. Also the guide was very competent and gave a lot of details about the Orca family we were watching and following more than 30 minutes. The supplied clothing was comfortable and kept us warm.
A must do for every Vancouver visitor.
