    Amazing

    The Beluga: the most amazing trip of my life! I highly recommend this tour. I went for 7 nights and never wanted it to end. The snorkeling is fabulous-so much sea life to see up close, barrel rolling with sea lions the best experience of my... life. The nature walks and hikes were just spectacular. Everyday was better than the next. The staff were fabulous, personable and a great team, and went out of their way at accommodating everyone’s special needs or wants. Sixteen passengers is about the right to explore the islands and share the experience; it was a mixed bag of ages, personalities, and nationalities yet fun and cohesive. Darwin, our guide, was so informative and patient. Although he must have done this 100’s of times, he seemed to enjoy the flora and fauna as much as we did. I thought this was a once and done trip, but after this experience I cannot wait to return. Read full review
