It was fun. The crew was friendly and hospitable, they made sure we saw the whales. We saw the killer whales and humpbacks (at a pretty good proximity, got good video too). Also saw the seals, sea lions. Salish shallow boat was good, high speed. Had a good time. Since we went in December it was cold, so better to be prepared with jackets, scarfs and thick gloves if it winter time.
Great name, great company. They did not disappoint. We took the last tour of the year and spent hours being circled by a giant pod of Orca's. Great staff, great boat, great adventure. I will be back next year.
