We saw so many whales. Mark the captain was great at finding them for us. We saw both resident and transient orcas, as well as many humpbacks. Just a perfect morning. Thank you!

Staff was friendly, competent, and efficient. I know that the Captain was trying very hard to find whales for us. I know that these are wild animals and it is difficult to predict their whereabouts. Still, it was intensely looking forward to seeing orcas in the wild and was

Hello williamg819, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. I am glad to hear that you appreciate the effort that the skipper made to locate killer whales, but sorry they weren't in the area that day. But like you said, because they are wild and unpredictable we cannot guarantee that every tour will see orcas. We hope to have you out again, and hopefully next time we will be able to show you orcas :)
