Captain James & Anthony made the trip fun. Lots of jokes, but also good information. Able to see both town & shoreline, which led to some nice photos. Blankets were provided, so when our kids got tired they curled up in our laps and took a nap. Would recommend this tour to friends & family.

While on an Alaskan cruise on Royal Caribbean, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Simply amazing all the history of the area. Be sure to turn over a rock on the beach, the hermit crabs, are quite harmless, and don't bite (much).

While on an Alaskan Cruise with Holland America, we noticed the Duck tour boat near the docks. We knew right away that we wanted to do it because we have also done the duck tour in other cities we have visited. Captain Bruce & Jacob made it all worth while. This is a must do activity.. So much fun!!!!!
