Our Boats Are Custom Designed for Whale Watching, Wildlife & Photography Tours
There is easy access from the bow to the cabin and back stern deck, and you are never seat-bound. With few passengers and ample space to move about, this means optimal viewing for every guest on board – every seat is the best seat! This also makes our boats ideal for our guests interested in photography as well as custom photography tours.
Your safety and enjoyment are of great importance to us. Our boats are inspected regularly and have state of the art safety systems in place.
J1 and J2, named in honor of two iconic Southern Resident killer whales, are our newest vessels.
They are luxurious and smooth riding. Tours on J1 and J2 accommodate small groups of no more than 12-16 passengers or fewer per tour. In addition to regularly scheduled tours, these vessels are also available for private charters and photography tours.6
Swift, sleek, safe and stable, T2 is our high-performance day cruiser named after an iconic Bigg’s killer whale.
It comfortably accommodates up to six passengers making it an ideal choice for couples, family groups, photographers and solo travelers. T2 offers an incredibly fun and unique, close-to-the-water viewing experience with ample space on the bow and stern. The boat has a head, or marine bathroom, for your convenience.
