“Chartered cocktail cruise”
Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

We chartered the Island Caper for an evening cocktail cruise for 100 guests for my husband's retirement party. Although the boat arrived back from an earlier whale watching cruise a bit later than they had planned, they were able to clean up and prepare for our group very quickly and we were underway in a jiffy.

The crew were very experienced and helpful and provided us with a bartender and assistance with set up. We received many compliments on our choice of venue for this party and it was a great success.

Thanks to the entire staff who made our event such a great success!

“Have a beautiful day”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Got a Groupon ticket fro this one. It was supposed to be raining but it didn't luckily. Could see both resident and transient whales. The crew is exceptionally friendly very knowledgeable guide. It was great fun. Though I think if it is raining then there won't be enough chairs in the cafe for everyone to sit.

“Had a really good day!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

we purchased our tickets on Groupon. Very good value for a full day at sea. The crew is very friendly!! You can buy a lunch on board or pack your own lunch. Once we arrived at the spot we saw a lot of Orcas and two swam reight under the boata. It was a great experience! the boat has a lot of room and couches in one area amd table and chairs in a other. easy to get to and i would go again and recommend as well.

“Wonderful Boat Cruise, Exceptional Friendly Crew”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

I took this cruise last year with some friends and was very impressed with the boat, accomodations and crew. The naturalist has amazing knowledge of the area and all of the wildlife we saw. I am in the process of booking a cruise with my family and look forward to sharing this experience with them.

“Outstanding Whale Watching Excursion”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

I recently invited two friends (one from the Midwest and one from Washington) to accompany me on a whale watching excursion out of Bellingham, Washington. While I have been on many whale watching outings, both friends had never had to opportunity until September 10th, 2011.

Everything from the check-in process ( exchanging an Amazon voucher for boarding tickets) to the boat orientation, available and affordable food fare, souvenir selections for purchase and especially the friendly and helpful crew were outstanding. Casey was our "talking guide"; she provided an excellent scope and breadth of information from notable historical figures and history, geography tips, whale facts and whale sighting locations. Thank you to all the Island Mariner crew for showing your best in customer comfort and service.
