Owner description: Whales Rock! Enjoy a six-passenger, personalized whale & wildlife adventure of a lifetime. Join Captain Hobbes who grew up on the water in England and has been operating whale watch tours and passenger vessels in the San Juan Islands for 12 years. Come aboard “Natsilane,” named after an Orca Whale legend, a 30’ Albin Fast Express Cruiser, and enjoy a comfortable heated cabin, with indoor and outdoor seating, restroom and snack bar. Don't be a sardine in a can on a big boat -- enjoy an intimate experience in the beautiful San Juan Islands!

Capt. Hobbs was very professional, friendly and accommodating. The boat was very nice, clean and comfortable. The Captain found the whales and we were able to watch them for a considerable time and distance while still being very respectful of the whales and keeping our distance from them. I found being on a smaller boat to be a lot more personal, and it was very fast.
