We had an awesome whale-watching trip with Western Prince! The captain found a minke whale and we respectfully followed a family of 7 orcas for at least an hour. The other wildlife and scenery were magnificent as well. Highly recommend!

what a great trip. My wife , who was a bit fearful about the idea, said afterwards it was worth every penny and more. Saw Humpback whales and their calves up close. Wow!!. The captain and the naturaliset were informative and could not have treated the passengers better. Highly recommended

I had stayed at a place on Orcas Island and when I checked in I saw they had tours. I was so bummed that I now had to get to Friday Harbor in the morning to do the whale tour. I am so glad I made what I thought was a great travel error! We ended up seeing Orcas. They mentioned whale sighting in the far south and they may not make it but they would try. And they delivered! It was breath taking. We spent about 45 minutes there and we were going to be late getting back, but they allowed us the privilege of a prolonged experience. On the right back we saw a humpback breech and so we stopped and waited 8 long minutes to see if the whale would surface. We saw the whale surface 2 more times and headed back. Katie was our tour guide and she was great and very knowledgeable. When I returned back to the resort on Orcas Island and gal was so disappointed that they traveled from Connecticut to see whale and did not get to see whales. I was never so thankful that I chose Western Prince and didn't realize the convenience of choosing the tour at our resort!
