Thank you so much
The seating arrangement was not ideal for someone of my height at 6’4”, and I would have preferred to ride on the other boat with the tables inside the cabin.
I had a good time. I wish I could have booked this trip with less concern about losing most of my investment because of a late plane. You didn’t accommodate that request.
Good experience. Saw a bunch of whales. Learned a lot. Though I do wish they had hot drinks on board. We pay $100 which is a lot of money for a ride with 40+ people on it and no hot drinks to warm you up. Definitely think more should be included then just the ride
Hey I felt the team was top notch, cared about the whales and the environment and really gave us an amazing time out on the sea!!
We had a great time. Smaller boat size made it more personable and we spent a long time with the whales . Very knowledgeable and funny staff. You could tell they loved their jobs and the animals
Jim was an excellent captain and the fact that we saw both killer whales and a humpback made our day!
The trip was great! We saw whales and many other fantastic animals. The staff was knowledgeable, timely and friendly. Highly recommend this company for a great time. Remember to dress warmly!
loved having the naturalists talking about things when we stopped! Captain was funny and informative. I don't know how much of my experience is affected by the fact that we apparently had a not-so typical trip. We happened to catch the last part of the orcas feasting on a seal, then they swam within a few feet of the boat giving us all an amazing show. After that we saw some orcas with a seal, teaching the young ones how to kill.
We had a great time saw gray whales and Orcas. The crew on the Blackfish was great. They were very informative and really showed us a good time. Well worth the money.
We had such a great time! So exciting to see so many whales. Captain Matt did a wonderful job making sure we had a great view and explaining some awesome facts about the wildlife we were viewing. Can’t wait to do another trip again soon!
Beautiful day, very much enjoyed the wildlife (Thank you Captain for navigating the choppy waters and sterring us to check out neat wildlife spots!). The only uncomfortable thing was that Brooke was a bit aggressive about her views and mentioned a couple of times how people are terrible and stupid. We felt there are other more positive ways to communicate support for things like the Endangered Species Act without being disparaging. We appreciate the gravitas of the situation but from a customer service standpoint, people come from all over and you really never know who you're speaking to or what their background and views are. For us, we were celebrating a 10-year anniversary and didn't really enjoy being told human beings are horrible through the whole thing or thinking about politics. I'd just advise keeping it positive- ex:"The endangered species has really benefited the whales here by protecting their food source...we've seen these positive results, our hope/goal is to see this many individuals in the future to indicate a healthy population... Our concerns are..."...rather than people are horrible. Really it was the delivery, not the message. We did appreciate stopping to collect the balloons out of the water. Thank you again for the overall great trip!
We loved the continual checking in by staff to see how our group was doing - 28 of us. Ongoing education, humor, and explaining where we were traveling to next with what we hoped to see once we got there was appreciated. And! It was incredible we got to see both a grey whale and minke whale. I think many of us were thrilled with seeing stellar seals, as well. Such an incredible day, rain and all! Thank you!
The Crew - Amy, Dawn, and Matt - are just amazing
Love the tour. I thought it was tacky to ask for tips after $100 tickets. Consider paying your employees more. Well over $4000 per boat trip and it doesn’t seem distributed.
Outstanding crew! Saw many whales!
Everything was perfect and Drew and the crew were awesome!
We picked your tour because of the boat and were a little disappointed when we were loaded into what seemed to be a different companies boat. Just being picky.
All in all it was wonderful and once again the crew went above and beyond. We will be back.
The team worked extra hard to make it a great adventure.
The Captain and Crew were very professional and courteous throughout the tour. With Veterans and their families onboard it was nice to have a two prior service, Navy, and a fire service person onboard. It made the trip more pleasurable and fun.
The trip was great, the crew was wonderful, but we didn't see Orcas. Of course, this isn't your fault at all! But I can't give a perfect 5 rating because that's what would have made it a 5 star experience for us. We were very happy with the tour we did get though, and would absolutely come back as well as recommend you guys to others. Maybe next time we will get lucky with finding the Orcas!
It was my birthday and the captain and crew were amazing. We got to see killer whales and they were very informative
The crew was amazing, accommodating, and added enough humor and marine life facts to keep us all entertained. Slightly disappointed that no orcas were able to be seen, but understand that is not always possible, Enjoyed our over 5 hour trip, but missed our ferry reservation from Coupeville to Port Townsend...so backtracking around to take a Seattle ferry was needed. But, this will not prevent us from booking trips with you in the future! Thank you!
We loved the knowledge the cruise members had about the variety of whales we saw.
Captain and crew were fun, knowledgeable, and saw to it that we had a fabulous outing!
Out trip on the water was great. Your staff is very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. We had a great trip! Thank you!
It was not disclosed when booking that the exterior seating on the boat was limited to only a % of the passengers. And there was not enough seating inside once ot got coldoutside for all booked to sit inside.
No orca sighting but perfect service and lovely sea life.
I had my heart set on seeing orcas. We saw a gray whale.although I understand they can't control the whales & where they are I was expecting more. 20 yrs ago on our honeymoon we did an excursion out of Sidney, BC & saw so many orcas. I had hoped for that again. The crew, Matt, Aubrey & Beth were wonderful. Very informative & personable. Overall it was a nice morning adventure.
We had a great time with Matt, Brey and Beth. Gorgeous scenery and they were delightful educational as they showed us the animals of the area. Very enjoyable trip.
The trip was awesome. Captain Drew has a great sense of humor, helpful, friendly and caring of his passengers. Beth and Alex were very knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to see to humpback whales,Heather and Raptor. Captain Drew followed them which allowed us lots of time for watching them. He was never in a rush which is much appreciated. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
Great friendly crew. (Cowboy Dave, Jen, and Amy). Knowledgeable and we saw whales. Could not ask for a better day.
