Not sure why the one reviewer so negative, but good to see other positive reviews. We had a great day, and Captain Ron did his best for us on the boat. Friendly and informative, this trip on a small boat was so much better than...More

Yes, we saw lots of whales, however, the owner/captain could not have been worse. Felt like he was forced to be there and acted like the excursion was a bother and total bore. He never shared any info so we learned nothing. He would answer...More

We were the only two passengers on this cruise and had a fabulous afternoon. We were looked after beautifully by Ron and given great information about the LeConte Glacier and LeConte Bay. An amazing experience, thanks Ron.

Took the half-day trip to the glacier with Ron L in his very new jet boat. Really really nice. Lots of information. Spectacular scenery. Lots of time spent slowly plowing through fields of icebergs and floating about 1/4 mile from the face (Ron pointed out...More

My dad and I took the half day trip to the LeConte Glacier. The boat was solid, the ride was comfortable, and the captain was very knowledgeable of the area. It was a great experience.

Disappointed Based on previous reviews, I guess I had high expectations, but was disappointed instead. Yes, the weather was bad, but we saw lots of whales anyway. My issue was with the captain. First, he showed up late with no apology or explanation. After a...More
