We went on July 27th. My friends and I had the best time. We saw quite a number of puffins along with around 25 orcas and 4 massive bald eagles. Oh..let's not forget sea lions and the daddy of all a stellar sea lion. All in a day!!! We may have to wait a year or two before we see... More

We wanted to take our visitor from France out to see whales. For a business close to home our web search turned up Puget Sound Express and we are so happy it did. I reserved online and after hitting the send button noticed I had put in the wrong date. I sent an email directly to them through their website... More

I have been on a couple of different trips with Puget Sound Express and really enjoy their family atmosphere.. (get the coffee cup and buckle for sure). The staff and captain were... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the boat and cleanliness. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and cordial. The trip was enjoyable for three generations of our family. We saw over 10 Orcas, seals, eagles, and other wildlife Super fun cruise. We highly recommend!

When planning our trip to the Olympic Peninsula/Washington, I really wanted to include the San Juan Islands and Mt. Rainier but we didn't have time for both. This was the perfect solution. In one day, we got great whale watching, a scenic cruise around the islands, and two hours to walk around Friday Harbor and eat a yummy lunch. The... More

Our family reunion group reserved 6 spots on the all day tour last week - what an amazing day. We saw so many Orcas and porpoise both on our way to Friday Harbor and on our way back. Pete was our captain and was so patient to let us watch for a long time as Orcas were all around us... More

I had the pleasure of being a passenger on Cory and Trevor's boat and let me tell you, they really treated me like royalty! Both were very knowledge about the boat, sea life, and safety protocol. I felt comforted to know that the boat had life preservers for everyone and we were taught how to use them. I was also... More

I went with my 4 young children and my husband on the 4 hour whale watching tour on the Red Head. It was the highlight of my 4 young children's lives. I had the pleasure of having Hailey and Trevor as our crew members and Christopher as our captain. These 3 people made the experience outstanding! We got to see... More

My sister and I took the 4 hour morning whale watching tour this last Saturday. Puget Sound Express does a great job of finding the whales. They are in constant communication with other boats to see where the whales are that day. The boat was comfortable and the ride was great. The boat we were on held only 40 passengers... More

The PS Express has been in business a long time. I have taken the excursion about 7 times, and have seen plenty of wildlife every time. We saw plenty of Orcas every time. The boat is comfortable and seaworthy. the narration is excellent, and the crew makes every effort to get to the wildlife, and spend quality time. This most... More
