I purchased it in Springtime as a Mothers day gift for Mom on special through Travelzoo. Regular price per person was $129. Our price was $59. We had to pay 5% Goods and Services Tax at the time of tour. It was so nice to pay for this months ago and when the day came we only had a few dollars out of pocket for crew tips and tax. It included a light lunch and promised nothing more than a great day on the ocean as this was not specifically a whale watching tour. We got far more than we paid for as two transient Orcas were spotted ten minutes into our trip. This time of year they are waiting for the resident Orcas to return from Alaska, which should happen in a week or two. These guys, also called Killer Whales, eat seals. Our resident whales eat fish. The two we spotted were male and female and ages 47 and 50. It is amazing how much the naturalists track these things so when spotted they know exactly who we are looking at.

What a great day it was. If we had been on vacation it would have been a high point of the trip. What is even better is that we live so close and hope to do this every year. It was so nice to see some of the Discovery Islands which have breathtaking scenery and to spend the day out on the water. If you ever get a chance I highly recommend it!
