Where will we go on the trip?

When whales are in the center of the map, most companies do see them – we just get more time.  When the whales are up north or out west, the Island Explorer fleet are often the only American boats watching whales

Because of our vessel speed, size, and duration of our tour, we're able to guarantee whales.  Often times, whales can move up to 100 miles in a 24 hour period.  Every day is a new adventure, but rest assured that you're choosing the company with the highest whale sighting success rate in the area.

Whales have been spotted on 6,431 of 6,630 tours since 2002.   No other company compares.

What's the Weather like? How to Prepare

Port Angeles sees considerably less rain than other areas in Western WA.  In the summer months, the temperature averages between 60 and 80 degrees fahrenheit.  Even though the weather can feel warm on land, we always recommend bringing layers – sweatshirts and jackets – as it feels 10-20 degrees cooler on the water.  Rain doesn't have a negative impact on our tours as our excursion vessels are set up to go out in the elements and have lots of indoor space and cover.
