We had a great time, not too many people on the boat and the commentary was very informative. Not many seals but that was not the fault of Allan or his crew. They could not magic up sea life when it was not there.

The trip was a theft. There were no seals and we didnt get any money refund. It was a loss of time. I wouldnt come back of course
