"Best whale watch boat in Washington"They will bend over backwards to find whales. I am a season pass holder and we have gone as far north as Salt Spring Island in Canada. As Far East as Race Rocks past Victoria Canada and as far south as Edmonds. These are great trips where you see all kinds of wildlife and you have a very knowledgeable naturalist on board.
