  • 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.
