Whale Sightings & Your Tour

All Whale Watching companies in the region (USA & CANADA) work together to track, locate & identify individual whales and whale pods. Yearly, our sightings network starts up in early spring and ends by late fall.

With many eyes on the water, typically tours running between June & September are the best whale viewing/ orca viewing.  Sightings are usually done visually by the first boats on the water. Any PWWA (Pacific Whale Watch Association) boat who encounters a whale or group of whales is required to report a sighting to a main sightings coordinator. The early morning tours typically depart the marina without a sighting but end up finding a group or whale along the way. 

As a company policy we inform each party, as they check-in, as to the current “Whale Sightings”. If we do not have a “Whale Sighting” we will offer you a chance to reschedule if we have room, to join in on the whale search and return for free if we do not find anything or to cancel with a 100% refund.

We are a small family owned company dedicated to responsible customer service. We also understand that many guests only have the opportunity to go Whale Watching once or twice in a decade. If we need to spend extra time traveling to see a group of whales we will. If you have a tight schedule please let your crew know as you board the boat or as you check-in for your tour. We hope you enjoy your tour, with over 30 years experience we think you will.
