This was a wonderful experience. Standing on the boat and driving to the strait of juan de fuca is a lot of fun. We saw 3-5 humpback whales, 30ish sea lions and 10-15 orca whales. One of the orcase swam directly under our boat and it was quasi underneath us. I would do this trip again! The staff was very friendly and offered us free coffee and hot chocolate.

I had a nice tour with Five Star Whale watching. They were professional and I liked the boat, because when it gets cold you can sit inside. Also at end of trip you might be tired and you can rest. Was not a great sightings day, but we did see three Killer Whales one was a baby. We saw one meinke whale far off. No guarantees with nature, but I had a very good trip with them. Highly recommend this company.
