We saw all kinds of birds - including Eagles. There were seals and many sea otters - some with pups. Captain and crew were very knowledgable and accommodating. Seldovia was a cute town to have lunch in. Great way to spend a day.

World class Captain and deck hands. They point out all the points of interest and wildlife. They share their expertise with everyone. They make the tour personal if you like the input. Seldovia is spectacular.

A good thorough exploration of Kenai waters for marine and bird activity. A nice stop in Seldovia for lunch and then back onto the water. It was a good day at sea.

What is your season? I am going to be in Homer the beginning of November which I know is kind of out of season for most things, but I'm trying to find things to do while my brother is at work.

Your best bet would be to contact their office for verification. My understanding is the season runs from may through the end of september
I'd like to know about tipping drivers and guides in Argentina and Brazil.
