The captain can call the bald eagles out of the tree with his whistle, and then feed them some chicken tossed in the water at Desolation Sound. Incredible experience. Can't say enough good things about the trip, the scenery, the captain & his first mate.

I have visitors in Vancouver from the 12th of May to 22 may and would like to show them a glimpse of Desolation Sound on a sunny day - we would be in total 4 people. How could that be arranged, how many hours would it take and what would be the cost? Thanks Ami Haasz
