The whole experience was amazing! The crew was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. The boat was exactly what we had hoped for, large. comfortable and afforded a 365 degree view. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

This was a wonderful trip. It was a beautiful day and we saw many orcas. My recommendation is to go on more than one tour, we were very happy to see whales both days. One day was slightly better because of weather and whales were everywhere and we did not have to travel far to see them. Meaning you get to spend longer watching them and taking pictures. The next day using another whale watching tour it was cold and was a longer trip back and forth to see the whales but it was still wonderful. Both experiences were amazing and you just don't know what kind of day you will have. Orcas travel many miles in a day so it is not in their control. I knew this was a once in a lifetime trip and it was my dream to see orcas in the wild since i was 7 or 8 years old. My childhood dream came true on this trip and if I come back, I will definitely use Orcas island eclipse charters again.

Boat was in great condition, had inside and outside seating including tables. All staff was very personable and went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable and that the experience was not only interesting but informative. Eclipse provided an excellent experience.

Fantastic day on the water! Dan and the crew were great! Didn't see the bigger Orcas due to conditions but we continously saw many younger Orcas for a few hours, wonderful experience!!

When the producers of Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home were casting for the roles of coastal marine patrollers, they didn't look to the scores of hopeful actors in Hollywood, opting instead to find boating professionals with real experience. Their search led them to Orcas Island Eclipse Charters founders Dan and Denise Wilk, whose extensive knowledge of aquatic wildlife made them a serendipitous choice for sharing the camera with Hollywood's most famous orca.

Aboard their 56-foot vessel, Dan and Denise continue to share the passion that led them to the big screen in the first place. Their enthusiasm shines through to passengers while they guide tours into the habitats of killer whales and harbor seals. Occasionally, expert guides direct passengers to look up from the water to spot deer on nearby land or bald eagles soaring through the sky above. When asked how they happen upon so many natural specimens on their trips, Dan and Denise would tell you they don't leave their tours up to chance, coordinating excursions with a whale-watching service that pinpoints where the underwater mammals are feeding.
