This was my third whale-watching trip--second from Friday Harbor. I take each of my grandchildren when he or she graduates from high school. My granddaughter's friend from Malaysia was with us last week, as was my sister. Unfortunately, this time there were no Orcas around, no fault of the tour conductors, of course. It was still a very special trip--awesome, in my grandaughter's word. An example of the very special service performed by the crew: Jessica's hat flew from her head into the water; immediately, the captain turned the boat, the female biologist, Caitlin (with the help of my sister!), fished the hat from the water, and the trip continued! That hat will remain special to Jessica! I will be back in three years, when my next granddaughter graduates!

The Whale watching was perfect. The weather was beautiful and warm. Ashley and Kaitlyn were so knowledgeable and informative that the time flew by. This is our 3rd tour with Viator and they have all been wonderful and the staff is amazing. I would recommend this trip for all age groups and something everyone should experience at least once in their life.

Our whale excursion with San Juan Safaries, Friday Harbor, WA was wonderul. Except for a slight snafu of Viator double booking us (they remedied it promptly without any problem) the entire experience from booking to end was excellant.

Incredible trip! We saw many,many orcas and 3 came to the front of our boat (that was stopped)! We saw tons of sea lions and harbor seals! The guide was very helpful and it was just simply an amazing experience! We would definitely recommend this trip!

I would love to take this trip at another time of year when the whales are more active but overall it was great.

This is an excellent five hour tour. Really worth the cost. We saw killer whales, porpoise, seals, and even a bald eagle. Really great staff. All around, this was a wonderful trip.

Our orca guide to the seas was wonderful and had all kinds of information and stories to tell, both happy and sad ones. I really learned a lot. I had no idea orcas are of such intelligent and caring nature, especially for their own families. It was a wonderful experience I will never forget!

Great tour, nice crew, good boat. And most important, we followed a whale for some time, saw lots of other animals and had a good time. (We just did not see the Orca's jump from the promotional picture. But, another participant showed us his own Orca jump picture ... taken during an Alaska tour ... too far away to ask the captain for a detour).

Friendly and informative crew. The boat was also pretty good. Great for family with kids.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Did not see any Orcas. We should have been told that there are no Orcas sighted lately due to low salmon population.

For the price should have had water and sandwich on board. Got tired of eagles and sea lions.
