It was a good experience. The guide tried hard to engage the guests, but most people were not paying attention to him. So I recommend that in the future he should observe his audience closely and talk less if people are not listening.

Kurt and Amy were an excellent team! We saw so many amazing sights. From the many sea lions to the Sea Hunt sub hunter sighting, we had an excellent adventure! Highly recommend!

This was worth every Penny! Excellent guides and a great way to see the city … the sea lions were the best part!
