TripAdvisor comments

  • Let there be lights!

    It could not have been a more memorable evening....calm seas and active skies showed us that we have not seen all things that need to be seen just yet! Crew did a great job; very informative and captivated along with us all at the light show. Would suggest getting the northern lights photo taker for the iPhone prior to getting on the boat.
