Chris did a great job on the three hour kayak trip. We saw seals,lots of different birds and sea life. Chris was fun and informative. He guided us to the beach where he showed many different sea creatures. It was fun and informative.

“Breathtaking experience”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Joe was our captain on the whale watching tour out of orcas island and Ashley was the naturalist on the trip. Joe was fantastic and stopped along the way to see everything from seals to bald eagles to mountain goats on our way out to see the whales. Joe took us to where 3 whales were and it was absolutely amazing. Ashley, the naturalist was so knowledgable about any animal you asked her about. Overall, such wonderful experience and we will definitely be back. Side note: make sure you bring warm clothes because it gets cold on the vessel!

“Experienced local”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

I have spent time in the San Juans for over 50 years. I have gone whale watching and seen them in local waters. I had a guest from CA so we boarded easily on Orcas Island to experience being on the water and seeing wild life. We did! The crew knew exactly where we needed to go to see orcas. Our boat held about 20 people and was confortable inside and out. We moved fast to get to the whales and the most thrilling thing for me was to see a 2 month old calf following its mother very closely. A new experience for me. Guides were knowledgeable and I learned things I did not know. Worth it for sure. There are big windows inside this newish boat and they open if the weather is iffy.
