Trip Cancelled
, Aug 2018
I had booked this trip in April and was very much anticipating the day trip, however, it was cancelled and I received no notification. Had I not called the day before to reconfirm we would have been at the dock at 7 a.m.expecting to go. Very disappointed on the way this was handled. Hope I receive a refund without too much hassle!

Saw lots of whales!

Whale watching was great. We were able to see a pod of resident whales all over the see. The naturalist Taylor was great. Loved that the boat offers complimentary dramamine. The boat ride is pretty long so make sure to take a book, games, or a laptop to distract yourself. Fell asleep for a good chunk of the trip. Did not give 5 stars because they do not offer complimentary coffee or tea.

Great Day Whale Watching

Stopped in Seattle for a few days on our way home to Texas after visiting my childhoodhood home in Alaska. Wanted to get out on the water to do some site seeing and whale watching. Departed from Pier 69 in downtown Seattle and had the best day ever! Orcas were sighted in Deception Pass with fantastic views. Once in Friday Harbor, we took out for 2 hours to find sea life and whales, heading back toward Deception Pass. Fantastic viewing of orcas hunting and behaving in their natural habitat. A shoutout to crew members Michael and Taylor for helping me retrieve my favorite jean jacket that I left on a bench in Friday Harbor after taking pictures of the family. Taylor made a special trip to the spot I left the jacket and brought it back on the boat the next day! Great trip, great naturalist narration of the whales and surrounding area, and fantastic staff. Take this day trip and you will make a memory to last a lifetime. Godspeed to all of you!

This was a very good tour. We really enjoyed Friday Harbor. The only issue we had was that the boat we took to Friday Harbor was the same boat we took whale watching. Because of the size of the boat, we had to stay over 200M away from the whales. Between the distance and the amount of people on the boat, it was very difficult to see a whale.

Be sure to leave extra early

It was horrible there was nothing about where to park we went to the address that was on the place and there was no parking so we had to drive around in terrible traffic and even though we left an hour and 15 minutes early we arrived at the boat launch 2 minutes before they were supposed to leave only to see the boat was already sailing off without us. They said that they could credit us towards another day but we would have to pay more because Friday cost more than Thursday however we were leaving Friday so basically money down the drain.

They suggest you arrive an hour early

Due to traffic and the uncertainty of parking we arrived 5 minutes prior to the time it was to leave. Unfortunately we watched it's a lot in front of us early. They told us that they could give us a credit towards another day but we would have to pay additional if it was higher on the weekend. We told them that we were leaving town tomorrow and that was not an option. They were not concerned with our needs. No refund no credit.
