We had a great ride to the glacier trail. I had been a little apprehensive but they made me feel very safe. On the way home we got to stop by gull island and see puffins and otters. I highly recommend this trip.

We took the last two spots on a taxi across the bay to the state park with reservations to be picked up 5 hours later. They were so reliable and easy to work with plus great advice on what to do and where to go.
