We saw two different pods of killer whales that day. The staff is great, Joe was very knowledgeable and accommodating. If you got to cold on the trip they offer blankets, gloves and hats.This was our excursion not through the cruise line and we left at the stated time and arrived back at the dock on time.

The staff on the boat was great, the were well informed and very helpful. We saw hump back and Orca whales. We saw about 10 Orcas. Ocean Magic Whale is by far the best experience you can have if you want to see the Orcas.

This was an amazing trip Emily and the Gang were very helpful and informative. We saw everything we had wanted to see. Only thing that would have made it better was if the animals had breached the water for some totally awesome pictures. But, I did manage to snap a few excellent memories. Will post some of the pics to their Facebook page soon as requested.

We had such a great time on our whale watching tour! Andrea made it extra special with all her stories and in depth knowledge of the ocean and the animals living there. We saw 9 whales, and more sea lions than I could count!
I gave 4 stars instead of 5 only because I wish the tour's website would have told us to bring gloves, a hat and a rain resistant jacket. I almost froze to death and got completely soaked on the upper deck. I wish I could have been more prepared for what it was like out there.

What can I say? It's a 50-50 chance if we're going to see whale or not. We saw the tip of the whale's tail from a distance and that's it for us, the animal was really shy that day. The boat ride itself was pretty cool and enjoyable, it is safe for kids.

Overall, it was a good trip. However, it says a minimum of 3 hours for duration. This was not the case for ours. We checked in half hour early as it tells you to do, then were told ours had been half hour delayed, so we had to find stuff to do for half hour. We were on a tight schedule b/c of our cruise ship, so we just walked around for another hour. Our boat loaded at 4:15 was scheduled for 3:30 we found Orcas around 5pm, and watched them from a farther distance than what is required. Other tour boats were closer than ours, but still seemed to adhere to the distance rules. We docked at 6:50pm. So, I was a little irritated at that. We had friends that did a similar tour through our ship excurions and while their's cost a little more, they were on time, and were way closer than we got. I felt like we were rushed b/c we were the last tour of the day with the same crew. I did get some pictures of Orcas, but from far away even with my telephoto lens.
