This was an awesome trip...I was a little worried when reading one of the reviews. Maybe we just got lucky. We did the PS Express on Saturday, May 17 and the boat was full. It holds probably 50 people. You can seat 6 people in a booth on the boat. The captain was the owner of PS Express...and he was great & really knew his stuff. We headed off to Friday Harbor (San Juan Island). The boat has snacks, Blueberry Buckle (a cake type breakfast treat), and drinks. The weather was also beautiful but a little chilly for the deck of the boat. Along the ride to Friday Harbor we saw several groups of Orcas! It was so cool to see them...I have never seen a whale before. We followed the Orcas for about an hour and got some great pictures. Then we headed towards Friday Harbor. We arrived about 12:15 pm....we grabbed a bite to eat at the Cannery House..which had sandwiches....and they were yummy...sandwiches start at $5.95 for a half & $7.95 for a whole. Then we walked through the small market they had on Saturday. Most people were packing up..but there was some vendors to see. It looked really neat. We were recommended by a local to rent a moped to see the island as quickly as possible (we only had 2 hours at Friday Harbor). We decided to just walk around...& look through some shops. We found a hot sauce shop...which had every kind of hot sauce you could think of, along with local ones made in Washington...cool souvenir. We really couldn't do much after eating a quick lunch....just walked around the main streets & got some pictures. We hopped back on the PS Express about 2:30 pm. We traveled around Orcas and Lopez Island and also Smith Island. We saw 2 bald eagles and some seals on the way back. We got some awesome pictures of the mountains and wildlife. The trip was wonderful and worth the money! I would do it again!
