Capt. Paul was friendly, funny, informative, and took great care to offer a safe and thorough trip. He communicated with the other boats to get us to see humpbacks, stellar sea lions, orcas, and many smaller dolphins, seals auklets, etc. Dr. Kat, the mate, knew a whole lot about all that we were seeing, and shared it with us with great humor and friendly style. The trip lasted longer than scheduled so we could see everything. We ended up doing a circumnavigation of Orcas and Shaw Islands. Even with a full load of 30, the boat had room for all, and offered different places to sit or stand depending on one's preference.
Overall, a first rate experience, and a high value trip with the discount offered by the brochures.

We had a great time. We actually saw the whales and got to spend time looking at them. Dr. Cat was also very knowledgeable.

Very nice boat and friendly staff. We would have enjoyed the trip more if the team provided more education on the environment, geology, and ecosystems we encountered. I would not be looking for non stop lecturing but a PA system on low volume with commentary during quieter times would be goo.

Our captain Steve seemed more interested in talking about himself and all of the boat driving and delivering jobs and his scuba diving and his ‘rubbing elbows with the yaghties’ than paying attention to looking for marine life or trying to find orcas. He evidently assumed that none of us had ever seen a bald eagle as he pointed those out over and over. Paid a lot of money to see bald eagles.

I would have preferred a more proactive overview about the whaleswhales, and what we were about to see. There was too much reliance on questions and answers.

First, the boat looked very safe, and the captain went over all the safety features and rules before we left. I also liked how we had options of staying inside or going outside or upstairs. Second, the weather was perfect and the water was flat. Third, the naturalist on board was very friendly and informative. I loved that the captain went farther to find the whales, and that he gave us at least an extra hour more than expected to enjoy them. I've been on previous whale-watching rides from Orcas, and from other places, and usually, the boat is all open, the water is choppy, and the weather is windy, wet, and cold. This, however, was the best I've ever experienced!--and the whales did lots of spouting, fluking, and breaching, so it was very entertaining.

Loved the whale watching, but Naturalist, in the front of the boat, was rude and argumentative with the ship Captain.

Our captain was very knowledgeable and the system you have of finding the whales is great - guaranteeing whale viewing!!! It was so awesome watching the whales swim along beside us!!

Dylan and Elliot were great! We would have loved to see orcas but were very happy to hang with a humpback for a while.
