I have spent time in the San Juans for over 50 years. I have gone whale watching and seen them in local waters. I had a guest from CA so we boarded easily on Orcas Island to experience being on the water and seeing wild life. We did! The crew knew exactly where we needed to go to see orcas. Our boat held about 20 people and was confortable inside and out. We moved fast to get to the whales and the most thrilling thing for me was to see a 2 month old calf following its mother very closely. A new experience for me. Guides were knowledgeable and I learned things I did not know. Worth it for sure. There are big windows inside this newish boat and they open if the weather is iffy.
