I found them online and compared them to other companies. They are the only one with high speed solid hull speed boats. I picked them in part so I could get my 80 year old dad out to the whales fast in a boat that he would feel secure in....they have a couple boats that hold only 12 people. When we did the 1:30pm tour many people signed up so we took their newest boat, a cigarette style modified with comfy seats that held 25. This boat was fast and stable!
They got a report of a humpback and baby, and we zipped out 11 miles in 15 minutes and there they were!!!
Then, although the San Juan islands looked far off, we were there in 15 minutes and there was the J Pod of orcas eating fish along the island coast. There were many whale boats but ours could maneuver more quickly to get around and ahead of them.
The staff narrated everything, and knew everything about the whales and answered all questions. We saw several juvenile orcas and probably saw twenty overall...one giant male had a dorsal fin that must have been six feet tall!!!
The seas were a bit rough at times, but this boat was stable and fun to ride....we saw many smaller zodiacs that were bouncing around.
This company also said they were the first to hook up with the local whale conservation efforts and others followed their lead, part of your ticket is donated if I remember correctly.
Great times, dad loved it!!
