While it’s not guaranteed that killer whales will be seen on this tour, there is more than a 90 percent chance. Plus, there is an even greater chance of seeing minke, humpback and gray whales. Seeing marine mammals, well, that’s a sure thing.

Professional staff on board. Great day on the water. Bring a warm jacket!
Smooth booking process and the tour company delivered on whale watching! I would recommend to a friend. Thank you!
This was an excellent tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and we got to see all kinds of sea life including seals, sea lions, and whales.
We had a very good time
The guides were great. We saw lots of Whales and other Sea creatures. Highly Recommend!
We followed a family of orcas for about an hour! The guides were great! We noticed the other whale watching boats would sit back and follow ours!
Although this was a long drive and ferry ride from where we were staying, it was more than worth it!! The staff was so easy to deal with and sent a very thorough set of information about getting to the island. The sightings were awesome and the entire day was something our family will never forget!
Tour was all we expected. Saw Orcas and Humpbacks. Everyone was friendly and informative. Thanks for a great adventure!!
Nice boat, knowledgeable and friendly staff. We even lucked out seeing 10 whales circling the boat at one point of time.
We saw a lot of Orcas and our naturalists were very enthusiastic and nice. It was a fabulous trip!
