  • My husband and I took my family from Colorado including my 85 year old mother on this cruise. My mother was very pleased to see the small boat had a covered area with comfortable seats to stay warm while viewing, but was also small and easy enough for her to move around outside. We spent 90 minutes with killer whales before going to see the stellar sea lions. Jeff, Spencer, and Sara (naturalists and boat captain) are wonderful! Thank you for a day we will always remember!
  • The crew were helpful and fun, and the boat was a great mix of comfort and speed. Allowed us to cover ground a lot quicker than I expected and have plenty of options for wildlife viewing (including windows that open so people can take unobstructed pictures from inside without being subject to the weather). For us it was sunny, but when you have to book a trip in the NW before you know the weather it's great to know you have that fallback option, especially when your camera isn't waterproof. Would definitely go with them again.
  • Amazing experience! We got lucky and saw an absolutely amazing whale show, but we also got to see seals, sea lions, and eagles. The staff was friendly and informative - the boat was fast and smooth even in slightly rocky conditions. Great tour, would definitely go with them again.
  • What a special and awe inspiring experience! Sarah answered the phone the morning we called and took the time to find a Captain to take us out on a 530pm whale watch. The effort to ensure we were able to get on a whale watch was greatly appreciated and above and beyond. We met Captain Allen at Snug Harbor and he was extremely friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. He was very passionate about the Orcas and all sea life. He found J Pod for us and we saw so many Orcas and were privileged to experience both their hunting and social behaviors. It was just a perfect night. I cannot thank Captain Allen enough for such an amazing experience. I highly recommend Maya's Legacy and Captain Allen.
  • My wife and I have been on several whale cruises; this was absolutely the best! Our onboard naturalist filled in all the pieces about where we were and what we were seeing, and Captain Jeff found everything we could have ever wanted to see. Not just orcas, but bird sanctuaries, harbor seals, and so much more. What an event for our entire family. All photos were shot on our tour.

Where to stay in Friday Harbor

As a popular summer escape for residents of the Seattle area and tourists from further afield, Friday Harbor does not lack for a selection of accommodation. Most places sit in the historical downtown area. Here you'll find charming inns and bed and breakfasts, upmarket suites and spas, and more basic motels. A couple of guesthouses sit farther away from downtown. These offer more privacy, but you'll probably want to have a carĀ if you choose stay at one. If you plan to arrive in summer, book your stay as far ahead as possible.
