I highly recommend this tour. Our captain, and guide, was Luke. He showed our group many interesting things along the way. He shared a ton of information in a fun and engaging way. He was very knowledgeable of the area as well as the eco systems and the science of how it all fits together. My husband is disabled, and Luke was very cognizant of his limitations and super helpful getting him on and off of the boat. We saw a lot of wildlife, including dolphins.
