Truly a home from home. One of our favourite places to return time and time again. The welcome is always warm. The food is always delicious. There are games and books in the common areas and always someone to play with or talk to if you choose. Rooms are comfortable.

Sue got over her frustration soon enough in part because within 30 minutes if missing the bridge tour she as one of the few to see a group of 5 humpback whales breach and show their whale tails almost directly along side of the ship!! Most of the rest of the morning was spent scanning the seas for whales and spotting a handful more, but none as close at the ones Sue saw. ...
... The story is clearly a "famous" one as they sell boxes at most stores and we eventually bought a totem pole that depicted this story.
The show wasn't too long that the kids lost interest. The end was audience participation and at that point pictures could be taken.
The button blankets that are worn are all hand made and the more elaborate the higher your status. After the show we headed into the adjacent gift shop. ...
