If you go on this tour look for the whale guide Virimlim but she goes by Bam. Kids loved her and she really complimented the experience

Depending on what hotel you staying at, there is a shuttle service but if it doesn’t come to your hotel, you may have to walk a couple blocks to get it.

Our specific cruise was steak and lobster. Didn't see any young children on board. They may have different cruises for couples versus families. I would call and check with them.
