I was on a cruise with my wife and we booked this trip separately from the cruise line. There were about 40 people on the boat which seemed a lot. However you could stand at the front, down the sides, at the back or up on top to get a view. The crew on the boat were very knowledgeable and friendly. We travelled a little way out to where the Orcas were. I am not joking in saying over the next two hours we saw about 50 different Orcas. They were all over the place swimming under the boat surfacing near by etc, it was brilliant. I understand they have a resident population of Orcas there so all being well should see them. We were very fortunate that day to see so many. The crew on the boat know many of the Orcas by their markings and dorsal fin, which just adds to the experience. We also saw one Humpback which was busily feeding and then went over to a particular group of islands and saw (and heard from a distance), Elephant seals, Stellar Sealions and a sea otter floating on its back on the surface with with its feet in the air, it was great. The trip lasted about 4 hours and was some of the best holiday money ever spent. I cannot recommend this experience enough. Obviously we were lucky with our weather with visibility being excellent.
