New ship with knowledgeable crew who were in touch with other captains to share info on pod location. Plenty of room to see and opportunities to ask questions.

There are no snacks on board--you need to use the $5 credit at the office before boarding. Don't rely on their website for check-in information. You need to go upstairs to their office to check in. Even on a hot day it is cold on the water--bring a jacket, especially for the evening cruise.

We were surprised when we showed up at the port by an $8.00 parking fee, which was not disclosed before we booked the voucher. There was plenty of parking at the port so I don't understand why the fee. Plus, no signs stated that there was a parking fee. I think this was Outer Island Expeditions way of collecting extra money from us. We were expecting to see Orcas on the whale watching. All we saw was one humpback whale for about ten minutes.
