Whale Watching

Our regularly scheduled whale watching charters leave from Anacortes (on the mainland) and Orcas Island.  These 3 to 4 hour excursions on our high speed vessels are the best way to see the scenic San Juan islands while looking for Humpbacks, Minke, Grey, and Orca Whales!

Along the way we'll encounter stunning scenery, seals, sea lions, porpoises, bald eagles, and more!  With experienced captains and trained naturalists on board these tours are great for friends and families alike.  

Departures at 11:00 and 3:30 daily in the summer from both locations, and 1:00 PM in the spring and fall. 

Kayak TOurs

Kayak Tours are offered for a variety of skill and experience levels in our stable two-person kayaks, with all the necessary gear, and professional guide.

Our Point Doughty Tour leaves from our location off the North end of Orcas Island.  No kayak experience is required for this tour and our guides will assist with gear adjustment and basic instruction. Expect three hours on the water for this tour where we commonly see harbor seals, sea stars and bald eagles.

For more experienced paddlers we offer a full day tour of Sucia Island checking in at 9:00 AM where you will be ferried to the island and enjoy a leisurely paddle of this state park.  Pack a picnic lunch and water for your excursion that returns to Orcas Island around 3:00 PM
