  • We had a group of 4 that took the 8 hour San Juan Whale Watching cruise. We had a really good experience. We reserved tickets online which were readily available upon check in process. Boat boarded in...  more »
  • My husband and I decided at the last minute to take this whale cruise since the first cruise we took (with a different company) wasn't able to find any whales. We left port and went straight to Friday...  more »

  • 4 years I have been on the San Juan Cruises boat's. I have used their boats for pleasure and study and have never had a bad day on them. The Captains and crew are great and the viewing of whales amazing. I always have used the Friday Harbor run, but have been using the new 1/2 day run. I recommend both. Enjoy the boat and whales and the friends you are bound to make.. Save our whales.
  • We have a very nice day cruising with San Juan Cruises. It was well worth the money. The crew was very friendly and informative. The food was good. The scenery was fantastic and we did get to see some whales and plenty of other wildlife. I would do this again any time.
  • The cracked crab cruise was fun. It starts in evening so the first half of the cruise is great and you can see the beautiful scenery and enjoy the food. The captain explained some of the sites as we went by and seemed pleasant. The way back or second part of cruise is much darker and you won't see much of the landscape. There was more than enough food which consisted of crab, chicken, broccoli salad and potatoes. There were breadsticks as well (only one each, I would have liked more) and a coffee flavored dessert. One thing I found odd was that the tips that are given for "waiters/bartenders" are also shared with the captain. That seemed strange because normally support staff is not paid very well so tips help to supplement their income, I didn't agree with that whatsoever but left my tip still. Overall, it was a nice relaxing cruise, at $60 a person it was worth the money. Nothing spectacular to speak of. My 4 rating is because I love landscapes and it was enjoyable to see an area I had not seen before plus the meal was good. They could get a 5 rating if they maybe had a speaker for second half that could have some fun facts about the area since we couldnt see anything outside (or something to supplement the lack of a view). They could give at least 2 breadsticks to each person. The last thing they could do to get a 5 rating is ensure that the tips are shared by the waitstaff not the Captain of the boat.
  • Lovely cruise out in the bay. We went on the wine cruise. The wine was good. Then "snacks" were basically cheese and crackers so next time I'll take my own picnic. All in all it was a nice time.
  • We have taken the brewers cruise 4 times now; we love it! Plenty of good beer, and enough snack food for a light meal. Summer evenings on the Bay are hard to beat. My only reserve is the ride is a little short.
