Thank you to everyone who took one of our sightseeing tours during the 2010 summer season. We are currently developing our schedule and pricing information for 2011, and will be updating our website shortly.
Talk It Up TV just released a feature on our company, which you can view here:
Yesterday we were lucky enough to see J-pod twice from the Victoria Star 2. First, we saw them on the way to Victoria, just off Bird Rocks, then we saw them on the way back at Salmon Bank. We saw the same group on the Island Commuter, during our whale watching tour from Friday Harbor.
Great whale sightings continue, with J & K pods located near Vendovi Island/Viti Rocks on Tuesday, and Orca and Minke whales found just west of San Juan Island yesterday. We are now seeing them frequently on our dedicated whale watching tours on the Island Commuter, as well as our trips to/from Victoria on the Victoria Star 2.
The Orca whale sightings have been great over the last couple of weeks. On one of our Victoria cruises we even hit what our captain called a “trifecta”, with sightings of 3 different species – Orcas, Minkes and a Gray whale. The weather has been kinda so-so in recent days, but the forecast is calling for sun Tuesday – Friday. Sun, whales, the San Juan Islands and Victoria – it’s going to be a great week to take a boat trip!
The long holiday weekend is coming up – a perfect time to take a trip to the San Juan Islands or Victoria, BC. We still have space available on our cruises this Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday. Reservations for our trips to the San Juan Islands or Victoria can be made through our website, or by phone (1-800-443-4552). You can do a day trip, or spend the night or several nights.
The Island Commuter is out this afternoon viewing a group of transient Orcas, just south of Vancouver Island. Hopefully our Victoria Star passengers will also see them on our 5pm departure from Victoria as well!
We started our cruises to Victoria, the San Juan Islands and whale watching on April 30th this season, and have had lots of great whale sightings so far. Of the three resident pods of Orca whales, we’ve seen J and L pods so far, but have also been lucky with finding transient Orcas and a few Gray whales too.
