Actually saw whales!

Wonderful Guide

Aug 17, 2014 Frank & Becky Washington, United States

It was amazing, the guide and the captain and we saw many orcas.

Aug 14, 2014 Tihomira Washington, United States

The guides, the area, the perfect weather.

Very professional, but easy to work with and to talk to.

Aug 12, 2014 Dan WA, United States

captain and boat were very nice and they found a large pod of transient orcas for us to view. Captain had lots of great information.

The booking process and customer service were severely lacking. I purchased 6 vouchers then found out they had exclusions on how many could be used on one sailing. This wasn't disclosed in the offer before purchase. Also, the person I spoke with on the phone was very rude and unwilling to help or make the situation work for both of us.

Tour guides were knowledgable and fun.
