TLDR: My girlfriend and I were denied entry to the whale watching tour and had to purchase tickets for the next day. We were promised a refund then ghosted.
I purchased tickets for the wrong day. I consider this an honest mistake. I was made...More
Best orca experience; lot of orcas to see up and close.
The boat filled up too quick and it was raining; So there was a bit struggle with toddler to sit away from other family members; They should have one row per family so that...More
First off let me start out by saying I absolutely fear the ocean! It’s scary to think that we (as humans) know more about space then we do the ocean!
With that being said I’ve done a few things to over come my fears by...More
I enjoyed Orcas watching twice. First time with kid and second time with the whole family. Both times we saw Orcas. Sadly they are not that comfortable in a harbor anymore. But company ( boat captain) didn't break any rules when approaching Orcas, and turned...More
We had such an exceptional whale watching trip, I've scratched whale watching off my bucket list!! We watched 2 California Orca pods teach their babies how to hunt sea lions. For 45 minutes we were in awe of these beautiful ocean mammals. The Captain and...More
We visited Orcas very late in the whale season. I would have felt fortunate to see some resident Orcas, but we were lucky enough to spend some time very up close and personal with two beautiful humpback whales. They even swam under the boat.
I've used Outer Island Excursions many times in the past four years. When guests come from out-of-town, whale watching is always high on the list of things they want to do. With Outer Island, you can leave from Anacortes or Orcas Island - we prefer...More
On September 25, our family of six chartered a boat with Outer Island Excursions. Captain Jake was an excellent guide. Everyone caught Coho Salmon and we saw an Orca. It was many firsts for our family and made for an memorable trip. When we arrived...More

At times we were seeing two different pods (one at a distance) on either side of the boat. We saw over 25 whales (orcas) on our trip. First saw the ladies, then the males. (I guess the travel separately?) And saw two different pods. I imagine it depends on when you go but we saw literally dozens. I was told that all the boats communicate with each other on where the whales are, so it must have been the time.
