Since weather can be unpredictable, this newer indoor or outdoor boat fits the bill. The crew was very knowledgable and interactive. On the expensive side but good value for the trip. For a more adventurous excursion, the zodiac boats are fun but it is more rough and one will wear a provided dry suit. Saw many orcas, A humpback whale and sea lions up close. Delightful day!

Do this! The wildlife guides are informed and aware. They knock themselves out to spot whales and associated wildlife. And, they take pictures with you too, which they share at the end of the trip. The catamaran is fast and steady. The captain is safely piloting at the helm and very connected with the crew. Everyone is helping spot the wildlife. This is a HIGH value experience worth every dollar. Do it!

Super good and skilled guide. He knew a lot about whales and it was clear to feel the commitment. He was also very good at sailing the boat in difficult waters with floating timber. We were completely comfortable with that. It was a super good experience where we saw orcas and humpback whales
