The duration times listed are from the point that the tour group is the meet at the ship until the return to the ship.

All flight times listed are for the total lenght of the flight. All Helicopter tours have a weight restriction of 250 pounds, which is then charged at 1 1/2 the rate. Several of the tours had a child rate, but none of the flightseeing tours offered a child rate.

These number of tours were offered on the Northboard cruise of the Sun Princess. The Northbound cruise is in some of the ports longer than the Southbound cruise, so there may not be as many of the same tours available for the Southbound cruise.
