On our trip to the San Juan Islands "getting there," as the saying goes, was half the fun. The crew was very friendly, the ferry was clean and comfortable, and the scenery was wonderful. Snacks and coffee on board were very welcomed. In the morning we had fog and some rough sailing, but the trip ride back was like on a mill pond. The captain allowed us plenty of time on deck to observe numerous orcas. The whales were all around us, and some chose to come very close to us for photo opportunities. Another great sight on this clear afternoon was snow-capped Mount Baker along other peaks. The trip was a great experience and getting there was more than half the fun.

The boat ride was warm, friendly, and fantastic. The tulip farms were beautiful and very well laid out. The tour busses took us around to the farms in complete comfort. All fees and bus rides were included in the price of the boat ride.

We would not hesitate to take visiting friends and/or relatives on this trip.

A group of co-workers goes out once a month together. Each month it's a different adventure and July's cruise was definitely a good time. The cost was very reasonable for a evening on the bay. Good Margaritas, salsa and chips. The captain took us around the harbor and gave us some insights into the workings of the harbor and shipping and made sure that we had a great view of the sunset. A great way to spend a few hours with friends on a Friday night.

We went on the day cruise to the Tulip Festival. The boat ride was the best part. The scenery was spectacular!
