Cruising around the sound was beautiful and relaxing. We were able to see a few groups of dolphins but none were the kind we were allowed to actually get in the water with. We also witnessed a fur seal eating it's catch up close. The crew was great and there was no hassle with getting the partial credit for not being able to get in the water.
