Traveling by Boat:
In the summer the crossing is generally calm, though those who are sensitive are advised to take a dramamine an hour before departure. Dolphins and whales are spotted fairly often, and the boat captains are good about slowing and turning to get a good view. Most first-timers try to get a seat on the upper (exposed) decks, only to come back inside once the winds on the channel start to get cool. Grab a seat inside, leave your coat, and then walk the decks. All the boats have snack bars with cocktail service.
Traveling by Helicopter:
Experienced pilots, with a fleet of 3 comfortably upholstered jet helicopters. Especially on days with rough water this is the way to go.
