My fiancee and I wanted to go whale-watching on our trip to Orcas Island. Although a slight bit pricier than their competition, Outer Island Expeditions boasted a more personalized experience by way of a smaller group so we chose to book with them. Beau, our captain Joe, and the rest of the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about the part of nature we were there to explore. The trip was engaging and fun for a nautical novice like myself and we were fortunate to not only see numerous Orca whales in their natural habitat, but also seals, sea lions, and even an elusive Minkee whale. The experts at Outer Island Expeditions used their vast knowledge of marine life behaviors to give us an experience that exceeded our expectations. Our small ship (two other couples along with ourselves and the captain) allowed us more socialization and one-to-one discussion with Joe who answered all of our questions with expertise and conviviality.
We highly recommend this 3-4 hour trip as an addition to anyone's San Juan Islands itinerary. Thank you Outer Island Expeditions for a great time!
