Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Whale Watching from Friday Harbor submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
This was my third whale-watching trip--second from Friday Harbor. I take each of my grandchildren when he or she graduates from high school. My granddaughter's friend from Malaysia was with us last week, as was my sister. Unfortunately, this time there were no Orcas around, no fault of the tour conductors, of course. It was still a very special trip--awesome, in my grandaughter's word. An example of the very special service performed by the crew: Jessica's hat flew from her head into the water; immediately, the captain turned the boat, the female biologist, Caitlin (with the help of my sister!), fished the hat from the water, and the trip continued! That hat will remain special to Jessica! I will be back in three years, when my next granddaughter graduates!Reviewed by: Joye, August 2013
The Whale watching was perfect. The weather was beautiful and warm. Ashley and Kaitlyn were so knowledgeable and informative that the time flew by. This is our 3rd tour with Viator and they have all been wonderful and the staff is amazing. I would recommend this trip for all age groups and something everyone should experience at least once in their life.Reviewed by: ELAINE PRESBY E, August 2013
Great tour, nice crew, good boat. And most important, we followed a whale for some time, saw lots of other animals and had a good time. (We just did not see the Orca's jump from the promotional picture. But, another participant showed us his own Orca jump picture ... taken during an Alaska tour ... too far away to ask the captain for a detour).Reviewed by: STEFAN G, August 2013
Friendly and informative crew. The boat was also pretty good. Great for family with kids.Reviewed by: Bharat S, July 2013
Did not see any Orcas. We should have been told that there are no Orcas sighted lately due to low salmon population.Reviewed by: Stephen D, August 2013
