We were on an evening tour on August 17, 2015. The staff at booking and at the counter were quite careful to make no guarantees about what we would see.

As it turned out, we saw close to 50 orca, as well as several humpback (one breaching), bald eagles, porpoises and seals. It was an exceptional and unforgettable trip, well worth the cost.

The boat was comfortable and modern, with excellent sightlines from inside and on the decks. This was the fifth whale watch tour we have taken in various locations, and this one was the best. All in all, highly recommended.

The staff was, approachable, knowledgable and enthusiastic. We saw Orcas, Humpbacks, porpoises, Dolphins, sea lions, Harbor seals, bald eagles, and more! My son dubbed today as the best day of his life and I have to say, it's up there for me too. This is a trip I'll never forget. We plan to make this a yearly tradition.

This was an amazing day that won't soon be forgotten. This tour far exceeded our expectations. We saw a lot of whales, bald eagles and sea lions. Our guide Jackie was so knowledgeable! She taught us so much and took the time to answer any questions. It was clear that both Jackie and Captain Wayne are passionate about what they do. I would absolutely recommend this tour!
