“Best Day, Best Crew, Best Everything!”

Rachel Jolley – purveyor of the JolleyGoodLife blog, recently published a post detailing her whale watching experience with Puget Sound Express. While we can’t promise that every trip will have quite as much wildlife as hers (it was quite a day!), if you are interested in whale watching in Seattle or Port Townsend, her post gives you a great sense of what our trips are like.

“Overall, I’d give this place 6 stars if I could. Aside from the organization and hospitality being on point, the crew’s true passion for sea life impressed me the most. When we saw the first humpback, the captain’s voice was so shaken with excitement, it was apparent that this wasn’t just a job for her. I think in any industry, when people love what they do, it offers better service for customers.”

Thanks Rachel for sharing your experience with us.

Orcas Visit the Seattle Waterfront!

This is Seattle whale watching at its best! PSE naturalist Renee Beitzel captured an amazing image of a transient orca visiting the Seattle waterfront on August 18, 2015. T037A’s and Co., put on quite a show. This encounter was seen on our Seattle whale watching tour departing daily from Edmonds – don’t miss a great experience.


KOMO News Profiles PSE’s Responsible Whale Watching

Denise Whittaker of KOMO TV in Seattle recently joined us on the Chilkat Express for our Seattle Whale Watching tour, departing out of Edmonds. Her report focused on “the rules of the road” that every boat operator needs to know when visiting orcas. Since these amazing creatures are an endangered species, private boats and whale watch operators are required to maintain a safe distance from orcas whenever possible.

As a proud member of the Pacific Whale Watch Association, Puget Sound Express takes care to give the orcas as much space as possible, while also providing an outstanding viewing experience for travelers. In Denise’s report, you can see a bit of the Chilkat, and hear Captain Pete talk about how we find orcas.
