Our whale watching boats are one of the newest and fastest vessels departing from San Juan Island. We offer tours from two excellent departure locations, aboard two different types of vessels.

All of our tours, no matter which point of departure, or vessel you choose, have a combination of location, speed & range needed to get you to whales. Each of our vessels has excellent outdoor viewing from the bow and stern decks, as well as unparalleled visibility from large cabin windows. You are never seat-bound, and can move freely between the cabin and all viewing areas.
