ORCA Reviews

If you want an excellent chance to see marine life and get the shots you need, I recommend chartering ORCA. ORCA was the perfect fit for our film crew of 5… our only issue was where to point the camera because there were too many blue whales. Great boat, great captain, Big blues. THANKS DAVE! – Via Email

Matt C., Bethesda, MD

A nice morning out with Captain Quin. Lots of sea life including seals, sea lions, sun fish and Dolphins. Was able to see a California gray whale towards the end. Chartered the ORCA for a small outing of 5. Great customer focus, nice boat and a great family outing. – Via TripAdvisor
