What a great crew and a wonderful experience. The overall experience relies heavily on the presence of the orcas, which obviously we had. But all the same I would be delighted to board the Odyssey again for a tour. Thanks everybody at SJE!!!

Make a weekend trip out of going to the islands. They are beautiful. If you get sea sick, its not too bad until you get to the whales. Take medication half hour before.

Great trip. They provide binoculars and blankets, but I would still dress warm. It was very windy at times. There is seating inside the boat cabin with windows too. If you have a camera with a great zoom be sure to bring it. The boat tries not to get too close to the animals fearing a negative disturbance. Therefore, a camera phone may not get the "perfect shots" you want, but my phone camera d shots weren't bad either. Allot for extra time in case the whales come out towards the end of the tour. It would've been unfortunate if we would've had to leave right as the Orcas started to show up. Fortunately, no one on the boat had to too be back for any other engagement.

The naturists were very friendly and knowledgeable. The whole staff was easy to work with, and they even delayed the boat departure due to the ferry being late. Great company and great overall experience!

From Our Editors

A tiny ripple glides along the smooth-as-glass water, alerting captain Pete to the fact that he and his passengers are about to have company. Sure enough, within seconds a group of glossy black fins breaks through the sea in a silent, synchronized ballet. A native Washingtonian who has spent his entire life on the water, captain Pete orchestrates San Juan Excursions to grant guests the chance to go head-to-head with nature in moments such as these. As marine naturalists certified by the Whale Museum?s Naturalist Training Program, captain Pete?s crew of passionate guides take to the peaceful waters of the Puget Sound to entertain boatloads of guests with informative facts about area wildlife witnessed during excursions.

The team?s passion for nature informs its low-impact approach to whale and wildlife watching, which is exemplified in the Odyssey, the company's tour boat. Originally a U.S. Navy search-and-rescue vessel forged in 1941, the craft is fueled by biodiesel when possible and maintains a low propeller RPM to minimize the Bono moans it releases into the water column. Though San Juan Excursions specializes in whale watching, it also sends adventurers forth to explore the waters on their own steam during sea-kayak tours.
