“Wonderful 3 Day Cruise”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We joined the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society for a three day cruise. The first day we sailed to San Juan Island and took a land tour of the English and American Camps. The second day we sailed to Sucia Island where we had a sack lunch with time to explore the island and then the captain went out of his way literally and figuratively to make sure we saw orcas. On the island we watched a river otter eat his lunch and had fun searching for fossils (collecting is prohibited). The final day we traveled back to Sequim via Deception Pass (a real highlight) and Smith Island. All the time a bird guide was on the deck pointing out various birds while Pete, the boat captain supplied other information about the natural history, geology, etc. of the area. The crew kept everyone happy and well fed. The boat was not overcrowded as they took fewer people than they would for a day trip. Everyone seemed to leave happy and wanting to do it all over again!

“Excellent Day Out - Gray Whale Watching - PS Express”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We just enjoyed a great day out on the gray whale watching trip with PS Express. The staff are friendly and willing to answer any/all questions about the trip. We went on their larger boat, which was comfortable, with the added bonus of coffee and coffee cake! Total trip time was about 5 hours and we saw all sorts of interesting things, including a good hour or so watching the gray whales. Worth the price!

“Unbelievable Crew -- great trip to Roche Harbor”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Just got home from a three day trip aboard the MV Glacier Spirit with two overnights at Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island, organized by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society in conjunction with the annual Bird Fest. This is an awesome crew with Capt. Pete and partner Jessica and Jessica's visiting friend Jill. They served us wonderful home cooked lunches, desserts and mid morning snacks for three days, kept us supplied with coffee, tea, and water (and BEAUTIFUL souvenir cups). Our luggage was taken care of every step of the way. They also do whale watching and Christmas light cruises to Seattle http://www.pugetsoundexpress.com/whale-watching-nd-wildlife-tours/audubon/

“Wonderful Experience!!!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We have taken many visitors whale watching...we have always seen whales!!! Fun to eat lunch and hang out in Friday Harbor. The trip is a bit pricy, but once a summer is doable...and they serve lovely blueberry coffeecake just after sailing...
