The team of the captain and the naturalist was excellent, both very knowledgable and courteous. Highly recommended!

After several trips to see Orcas, this was by the far the most successful!

OMW. What an incredible whale watching experience. Even the naturalist said it was unbelievable. We followed a pod for about an hour then they swam in a circle all the time rising about 5-6 at a time. Then on one turn we were stopped and they headed right to the boat rising and diving. At about 20 feet from the boat, heading right at us, they dove under the boat so near the surface I could see the big white spot on them (they were Orcas). On the other side one jumped up and did a full body breech and they continued, slapping tails for another 20 minutes or so. Breathtaking! We saw bald eagles, seals, sea lions and the weather was perfect.

The cruise staff on the boat was very nice and helpful.

Three days before the cruise date someone from Outer Island Expeditions called us basically saying that they would not honor the deal because we have an infant. They said they would have to charge the difference in price for full priced tickets or we could pay an extra voucher for the baby (which is basically the same thing). We ended up paying $77 more so we could take our 6 months old baby with us. As far as we are concerned, this deal was not honored at all.
