WHALE AND WILDLIFE TOURS
HIGH-SPEED WHALE TOURS
No trip to the islands is complete without a whale tour. The calm waters of the San Juans are home to a vast array of sea mammals including Orca, Humpback, Grey, and Minke whales. Our boat guarantees sightings May-Sept. On your search for whales you will also see Dall’s porpoise, seals, sea lions, sea birds and bald eagles. An onboard naturalist will help you appreciate our amazing ecosystem.
