I am kicking myself for not asking how long the trip would be prior to departing! In summary the trip was 8 hours plus. 4 hours to our first sighting, 20 minutes in the area of the orcas (viewing from quite a distance) and 4 hours return to Vancouver!!! Had the check in staff informed us of the distance and duration of the trip we would most certainly have spent our time elsewhere......perhaps at the aquarium where me would have been close up with the sea life! They don't know exactly where they will spot the orcas or other sea life but they certainly have a good idea. I was well prepared with food thank goodness.......the snack is nothing but dry muesli bars and water.
I am sure if you: 1) Ask the duration of the trip.......avoid trips over 3 hours like the plague.....you are completely exposed to the elements...... 2) Take plenty of food and drink 3) Avoid taking children as the vessels are very small and completely exposed.................you will have a enjoyable time!
