Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

When I did this trip I got up one morning at 4 (the sun high in the sky had me think it was breakfast time).  When I realized my mistake I decided to go up to the bridge anyway.  Just in time to see a pod of orca swim alongside the ship.  Lesson learned: nature doesn't go by a clock.
