We saw whales, but we were really too far away for it to be a great or a unique experience. The captain said they had to maintain that distance but it's a shame because other boats in the area were much closer. I had been waiting my whole trip for the whale watching but was left underwhelmed.

The captain was great and very knowledgable and the zodiac boats were fun.

The office staff at check-in were superbly organized.

Packed into the boat like lemmings. People on bottom level got wet over the 1.5 hour each way journey to find the whales, all the way to Whidbey Island. Their website suggested they have underground microphones to listen to whales, which were not used. Also, during the return trip, the staff should have used microphones for us to listen to the interpretive information. It was unorganized without the sound system as they would point to whales and most missed the visual cue.

Had so much fun on this tour on Aug 15th! I could not have been more impressed by our guides. They took the time to talk to everyone on board, and were super friendly and knowledgeable. We saw a humpback whale and learned a ton over the three hour ride. Reservations could not have been easier; everyone here was great, and it's obvious that they love what they do.
