I enjoyed the fact that they tried hard to find Orcas so we could see something on the trip. I also enjoyed the fact that the boat was clean, comfortable and that it wasn't crowded at all.
Other Comments
I thought we were going to see whales, which is what I purchased the tickets for. Instead we saw Orcas, which are technically dolphins. I specifically went this time of year (spring) to catch the gray's migrating north.

The staff at Outer Island Expeditions is phenomenal! Their captain was entertaining, informative and obviously cared about his passengers. The naturalists taught us things we'd never heard before about the whales and were engaging. The remaining staff was caring and attentive. We HIGHLY recommend Outer Island Expeditions!

We only saw one small pod of whales, although we were out for almost 4 hours, but the captain took us all the way to Canadian waters so we could at least see some Orcas!! Seeing the Orcas was awesome!! The surrounding areas, and all the places the captain stopped, were beautiful and the naturalists on board were so friendly and informative.
Other Comments
From check in until our trip ended, the staff was so kind, so friendly, and so informative. They went above and beyond to make our trip so much fun. I truly appreciated their kindness and Aloha and would totally recommend this company to anyone wanting to see the beautiful San Juan islands and the Orcas.
