Lots of time to watch bears play. Raptor center best part of excursion. Saw lots of bald eagles and owls that had been injured and now being taken care of there. Visited Indian River where salmon were spawning. Unbelievable how many there were!

Great time out on the small boat seeing whales and other wildlife! Captain was friendly and did a fantastic job finding several whales. It was a very good choice over the typical cruise ship excursions!

There is a free shuttle from the pier to the visitor center where you meet up with the tour guide. The marina is adjacent to the visitor center so you are right there!
