Went to view Sea Lions with a group from Richmond Nature Park (City of Richmond Parks & Recreation). We saw Sea Lions, eagles, seals. Was very fun, reasonably priced.

We went on this boat trip hoping to see orca’s and we did! We also saw sea lions, and a bald eagle. We really enjoyed the boat trip and the information given about the animals and area. Definitely recommend it!

We had wonderful weather when we went on Sept 24th. Just dress in layers. We were provided with a life suit which will keep you dry. I wouldn't imagine the whales are affected by the rain. Book it and enjoy!
