Admittedly, whale watching involves a lot of waiting...the difference with Orca Enterprises is that the waiting is nearly as enjoyable as seeing the whales. These guys were never stumped by a question, and we learned so much. The boat isn't overly crowded, and we were...More

We actually took this tour in Sept., 2017 and it was quite informative. The guides know a lot about the whales and were able to identify many we encountered. It was interesting to know that the flukes are as individual as fingerprints.
