We saw whales activities, but the whales were too far away. We had to pay an extra $9 pp to redeem the voucher. This should have been explained when we bought the vouchers from Travelzoo.

Unfortunately we did not get to experience the expedition so not much to say about it.
Other Comments
Unfortunately we did not make our expedition due to the fact that we were unaware of an unmentioned ferry ride that needed to be planned ahead of time to reach the location of our expedition. Given that we were not from the Pacific Northwest area and have never visited this part of the country, I would have expected to be provided some information about this particular detail being that these ferry rides also run on a standard schedule. Therefore, disappointed? Yes, of the fact that there wasn't more information given through the Travelzoo package. Aside from all this, we weren't able to receive a refund either which also made the experience even worse.
