I booked the quickie tour for 4 adults and 2 children. We loved it. We were able to see a few seals, river otter and sea cucumbers. Our guide Dan was awesome as well!

Our group of 12 had a great experience on the full day tour out of Anacortes. Highly recommend! Everything was excellent, from the communication to set up for a larger group to last paddle out of water at end of day.
