We saw lots of whales!!

we were suppose to go salmon fishing but not enough people signed up so we ended up going whale watching instead. It was a bummer about the fishing but Leif set things right and we had a good time anyway! We saw so many whales and that was awesome!

Our Captain Paul

It is best to research before you go so that you choose the best time for fishing. It was frustrating to get on the boat only to realize mid July wasn't the best time. Apparently, August is so I wish someone would have told me that when booking....because I did ask. Also, there were 7 people on the boat which made it a bit too cozy (small boat) and most people did not have the opportunity to fish.

The guide/boat captain was great.

Sky was great and made the whole experience fun.

We booked a salmon fishing trip and called a day ahead to confirm but it wasn't until we arrived the day of the trip that we were told that salmon weren't really running yet. He said the salmon were in one area and they had caught one or two in a different area. He took us to the different area where they had caught one or two and of course we didn't catch anything. Then about an hour into our trip he told us that since the other people who were supposed to be on our trip didn't show our trip was going to be shortened to only three hours. I didn't think it was appropriate that we were penalized because of no shows. They also should have been up front that salmon weren't really running when we called to confirm a day ahead - we could have gone crabbing with them instead.

Our guide was a nice guy and the weather was good
