The trip was amazing and the naturalist on board was excellent and we saw a pod of orca whales as well as harbour seals and sea lions. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
This tour was very enjoyable. We saw a lot of interesting marine life including several pods of Orcas. The information provided by the marine life expert was also very informative. The crew did an excellent job of communicating with others in the area to determine the best locations to find the Orcas.
Great trip and a very friendly/knowledgeable naturalist as a guide. I saw harbor seals, bald eagles, a humpback whale and a pod of killer whales. The stop at Friday Harbor was nice. You can walk around for two hours and grab some food if you like.They do sell food on the boat BUT I would HIGHLY recommend you pack a small travel cooler with drinks, sandwiches, and snacks. This is an all day tour.
Was great would like more details about the individual pods
We were so lucky this day to see all the wildlife we did. Guides very friendly and knowledgeable. I would do this again and HIGHLY recommend it!
Our ship located the whales very quickly and they are magnificent creatures! One even breached the surface during our trip which was a rare but great site to see. The two Naturalist on our tour did an excellent job pointing out wildlife along the way; very enjoyable, worth the price, I would do it again and I highly recommend it.
Everyone had a great time. Wonderful scenery. Great people. Simply awesome and worth every cent.
We had a wonderful time! Crew and Naturalist were terrific and she provided us with much useful information. Even though we live in the Puget Sound area we learned a lot. Will be going out again for sure. Seeing the area in person by boat is much different than looking at a map or pictures.
Excellent tour, friendly staff. Great talks about the surrounding area from the staff. We felt very safe, Friday Harbour a lovely spot ..... Would like to return.
Although we didn't see whales there was an abundance of other wildlife-- seals, dolphins, birds (including eagles) and the voyage meandering through the islands was very picturesque and peaceful. Good food onboard. Informative naturalist-guide. Friday Harbor was intriguing-- would like to spend more time there. Have an abundance of beautiful photo memories-- not set up to share at this time.
The trip was great! The price is super affordable and we get to see a lot of whales! The only downside is not being able to look at the whale closer, but that is because of the law.
It was an awesome day! I would do it again in a heartbeat. The only suggestion I would make is to make the stop in Friday Harbor just a little longer. Again, I would do this trip again in a heartbeat.
We unluckily had one of those trips were the whales were on vacation. But, I still enjoyed myself - the clam chowder was tasty, "runnin the waves" after the cruise ships was fun, the naturalist spoke, but not too much (thank you)... The island was a nice escape after being on the boat for so many hours. Overall, I would suggest this particular trip - hopefully when the whales return :)
