Testimonials

"I just returned from a week aboard the MV Liseron and I want to thank the Boat Company and the entire crew for the best vacation I have ever taken. Every aspect of the trip exceeded my expectations from the impeccable ship and abundant wildlife to the personal and professional crew, gourmet meals and exhilarating excursions. I only hope that someday I can return with my whole family to share the experience."

"Best vacation ever! 11 members of our family, along with 2 other families had the trip of a lifetime! Halibut, salmon and bears.... oh my! Not to mention humpback whales at close range, sea otters, river otters, sea lions, seals, brown bear, black bear, rock fish, sculpin and more! Each member of the crew was AMAZING and we had the chance to interact with them all. An entire week with 11 family member, two other families, plus 12 crew members with no drama or issues. Truly a magical experience! The Liseron is the best boat ever!!!"

"We had high expectations for our cruise aboard the Mist Cove. They were exceeded in every way. The scenery, boat, food and activities were all terrific. But the highlight was Captain Eric and his crew. We have cruised on small boats throughout the world and they were the best staff we have ever had the good fortune to share a boat with."
