Great value for the price and memorable experience from start to finish!
Easy to find location, convenient times to book last minute and wonderful way to view the area from the water in a comfortable boat for an hour! Highly recommend this trip to get a great appreciation for the deception pass - today we saw seals, bald eagles, harbor porpoises during a calm, relaxing boat ride. great for all ages and easy access on and off!

VIDEO: Baby Dungeness Crabs
A gazillion teeny tiny baby dungeness crabbies at our wash dock. If they survive from this ‘megalopa’ stage, another 4 years before they would be legal size. Not much of a scale to give you actual size, about 1/4 inch. Watch the video here.

Success on our whale trip this morning. We were fortunate to spend time with 20 transient orcas.

"Great Trip On a Beautiful Day"
Chartered the trip for a memorial / scattering ceremony. The crew were wonderfully accommodating. It was too early in the season for whales but the day turned out beautiful giving everyone a smooth ride. Also learned some interesting historical facts about the various spots.

"Come Early and You Will Be Awe-struck!!!"
Skipper Brett and Guide Jared did an awesome job, rivaling the excursions we did last year in Glacier Bay, Juneau & Ketchikan!!! We saw harbor seals, eagles and other wildlife AND amazing vistas of the surrounding archipelago islands - while thoroughly enjoying the company of very friendly & informative crew who treated us like family. We did the hour long jet-boat tour and it absolutely made our day!
