At Island Adventures, we are serious about finding whales.
This is a challenge every day because the whales never stop moving! Orca, humpback, and minke whales can travel over 100 miles in a 24 hour period. We use many different resources (cooperatively working together) to help in the search every morning. Over the past 20 years, our spotting network has evolved into the most sophisticated spotting network on the entire west coast — strategically placed land-based spotters using spotting scopes, many other whale watch vessels with a private encrypted radio system, exclusive industry based online sighting network, researchers, dive boats, early morning fishermen, water taxis, tug boats, and ferry boats. If the whales are in the area, we know it.
We understand our guests’ passion to see whales — especially orca whales in the wild. The waters surrounding Anacortes and Port Angeles are in the core whale watching zone. Every day is different and no two tours are the same — that’s why we’ve developed three different guarantee options.
By offering multi-day orca guarantees, we’re not trying to sell you more tickets or force you to go multiple days. We just want to maximize your chances to experience orca whales in the wild, which is a life-long dream for so many of our guests. If you see orca whales on one of your tours, you can cancel any remaining tours at no charge — no questions asked. We also want to set reasonable expectations that this is wildlife in the wild, and we have no control what the whales do or where the whales go each day. What we can give you is the highest possible chance to see whales in the wild due to our vessel speed, location, and tour length. No company sees orcas more than Island Adventures/Port Angeles Whale Watch Company — the proof is in our whale report.

"Great time for all"We took our 6 yr old. We all had a great time! Saw two humpbacks, otter, eagles, porpoises, and many Orcas including a calf. One Orca jumped straight out of the water. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly. The captain let our daughter stand next to him and even take a turn steering (with help). Tamara was our naturalist and she was great! Would highly recommend and would definitely go again.
