The vessel features a warm and comfortable cabin with indoor seating, large windows, a snack bar, and restrooms. Or you may opt to visit the upper observation deck for unparalleled photo opportunities, and to experience the surroundings. Be on the lookout for sea otters, whales, sea lions, porpoise, harbor seals, black-tailed deer, bald eagles, and a variety of wildlife species during this jet-boat excursion.

Your captain will vary the route to find the best wildlife viewing opportunities to see otters, whales, or bears on this excursion.
