Our cruise ship is going to be in Albany in late February 2018 from 8 AM to 5 PM. There are 2 excursions that sound interesting, but clearly only one is possible given the time we're there. A third option is to stay in town near the port and walk around, have lunch, etc.
I'd like opinions from others who might have been to these places -
1. Discovery Bay, the Whale Museum, exhibits.
2. Valley of the Giants - the tree-top walkway and walking of the Ancient Empire Trail.
3. Stay in town.
The tours are pretty expensive, so that weighs on my decision somewhat too.
Appreciate any advice or comments.
