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 :)
Great tour for the money. We had perfect weather and saw an orca pod with 7 members within 15 minutes of starting the tour.
the trip is long, but we knew about that.
The crew travelled about one hour more, close to victoria, so as that we could see the whales, and was a lot of them. We spend few time in Friday Harbor, that is lovely, but sure was a great choice
Great trip despite the weather. . . It was a bit rainy and a little cold but the trip was great. The company is very organized and punctual. The ride was comfortable and narrated.by a naturalist. They use the same boat for the whale watching so you don't have to get off until your return to Friday Harbor. They have great connections to know where whales have been sighted and we zeroed in and went directly to see Orcas. It was a great experience. The bathrooms on board are decent for boat bathrooms. and are also clean!! They also have good snack options that are fairly reasonably priced. My only suggestion is to print your voucher-I tried to do the electronic version and that didn't go as smoothly as if I had printed it. Overall a very enjoyable day!!
Had a great time looking for whales. Unfortunately we didn't find any. The crew did everything they could be make the trip educational and enjoyable.
