We did a morning tour with Scott, Eric, and Tyson. Our group went out on the new Island Explorer 5. The staff was awesome and entertaining and the boat was spacious. There are restrooms, indoor seating, and a cafe on board. Prices were reasonable. We were able to see orcas, stellar sea lions, bald eagles, and a porpoise. On the way back, they sighted 2 humpback whales so they stopped the boat to get a look. I loved that they took the extra time since they heard about the humpback whales on our way back to the dock. Very knowledgeable crew ! There's plenty of seating outside, but bring a jacket. It does get chilly, but it's worth it. Wish the orcas had come closer, but we had a great time !
Thank you for taking time to review your experience. It looks like you had a great tour with plenty of variety, and those humpbacks that were found on the way home were a great bonus find! We love showing our guests as much wildlife as possible, which is especially easy on the new Island Explorer 5! It was a pleasure having you aboard.
