This looks very interesting. Does anyone know which tour company offer this tour so that I can book direct with them?
Thanks for your help.
I would seriously recommend booking this tour as a shore excursion, as it's a "full day" trip that's going a considerable distance from the port of call. If the ship's shore excursion gets delayed by traffic or weather, the ship will either wait for it or make alternative arrangements to get those on the excursion back aboard. If a private tour gets delayed in the same way, you get to pay your own transportation (in Alaska, that means air fare) to the next port of call and your own accommodations and meals until you rejoin the ship. The difference is not worth the risk.
