The bear excursion was a bit of a let down, not seeing any bears. The whale portion of the excursion made up for it, though, and we saw dozens of Orcas and Humpbacks.
We saw so many whales and up close too - it was nice to be on a smaller boat with just about 16 people. Our guides were very knowledgeable. We saw both humpbacks and orcas - it was truly amazing!! We also saw a bear on the bear portion
