We were originally booked with Prince of Whales, but they didn't have a boat going out as it was low season (Dec 28), and the transition was smooth to take a Zodiac ride with SpringTide instead.
Although it was relatively cold- we were all well prepared, and suitably dressed- they provided some warm clothing to those that didn't have it.
Our captain Ian, was very well-informed and kept us entertained with facts about the wildlife and the local area. Through obvious collaboration with other companies, he knew where wildlife was to be seen, and it was a quick ride to the north to the islands around San Juan where we found a pod of resident orcas, who were very playful. So impressive to see these creatures in their habitat, and amazed to find them in such a vast area. There were guarantees given that if we didn't see whales, we could go again... so there is no reason to give it a go! Riding the fast boat in itself was fun enough!
