One of the best things we've discovered here. Captain Ron is incredibly knowledgeable about sea life, migration patterns and his sailing boat is gorgeous. Small craft, 6 people only - make reservations before you arrive -- you won't regret it. We went during humpback whale season - and he was able to track quite a few, and the bay is gorgeous.
