This is a great tour company. I've been whale watching many times, and this is the best company I've used. They had a qualified naturalist on board who shared a ton about the whales we saw. But she didn't do it over the mike -- so if you wanted to talk with her, you could, but you didn't have the... More

This is a smaller boat, very comfortable to sit indoors or out. The crew is friendly and knowlegable. It the Orcas are in the area, they will find them!

I booked this tour for my daughter and I because although I live in the Seattle area I have never been out to see the orcas. I thought that the captain and crew did a great job. We were able to see more orcas than I had expected we would. I'm sure it varies depending on the day though. We... More

The tour was good -- we saw whales as promised. I didn't care for the humor of the captain and the boat had very poor seating in the bow, but overall it was a nice day.

This boat is tailored for whale watching and is set up with table and chairs in the back under a covered canopy with plastic wind screens. You can easily go to the front of the boat and take pictures when you want. The walkway to the front is narrow so you have to squeeze past another guest, but not really... More

Mystic Sea Charters is a great way to to see orcas (and other creatures) in their natural habitat. The boat, heads, and seating areas were clean and pleasant. Captain and crew were informative and interesting. Coffee, drinks and snacks were inexpensive ($1). Bring your lunch if you want heavier fare. There is inside and outside seating, though the bow is... More

Awesome experience! My husband and I had purchased the experience on Groupon for an earlier trip. Because my husband deployed, we were unable to go within the timeframe purchased. I was disappointed because we had waited for this trip for some time! When we called, the office staff were so helpful and understanding. When we arrived for our scheduled trip,... More

I was very happy with my experience with Mystic Sea Charters. We went on the tour on June 22, 2015. As we were heading out we saw numerous sea lions sunbathing on the rocks along one of the islands. Shortly after that we saw a female Orca whale really close to the boat. We moved farther out and saw too... More
