The trip varies from 3-4 hours depending on what you see and where. We got super lucky and saw some beautiful animals almost right away! Over the time we saw a couple types of Orcas, Humpback whales, Harbor seals, a Steller Sea Lion, Elephant Seals and a couple Eagles. It was seriously as good as we could have hoped for! The water was calm and the boat very comfortable. It's pretty chilly on the water so consider wearing pants and bringing a light jacket. In addition to the sea life, the views of Mt. Baker, the Olympic Mountains, a number of islands and the coast were spectacular!
