5 StarsEnjoyable day with grandchildrenAugust 22, 2017

Our 6 adult children went trekking on the glacier and left our two grandchildren (ages 7 and 2-1/2 yrs.) with us. We first visited the salmon hatchery where they saw tanks full of lively salmon, some being loaded onto a barge, tanks with tiny hatchlings waiting to be released and visited the displays tanks where we could touch small water creatures. Then we transferred to the whale-watching boat and motored out to the channel to see many whales feeding. The kids were able to see many whales, also sea lions and a pair of eagles on their nest. The trip was exciting for them and commentary was excellent. The 2-1/2 yr. is still talking about going on the boat to see whales. It was a beautiful day and memorable experience for the kids.

Salmon hatchery was very informative as to maintenance of NW fisheries. We found whales, but were several hundred yards off. Telescopic lens necessary for good pictures. Still awesome.
