We got to see orcas so close,on our drive to and from Seldovia,. Seldovia is beautiful very quiet no noise.very touristy, due to the time we spent seeing the orcas didn't get much time in Seldovia. No regrets.

We went from homer to Seldovia for a birthday trip. The ferry is large and has adequate seating and bathrooms. The views are amazing as well and if there happens to be whales they will slow down.

We took this ferry because previous reviewers indicated that the Captain had stopped before to view whales if they were sighted. We didn't expect to be going slow enough to actually see any to stop but about 15 minutes into the trip the boat slowed...More
