Learn about our whale watching tours.
One of the best opportunities to see wild orcas is right here in the San Juan Islands, February through November. The Salish Sea is home to one of the richest varieties of marine life on the planet. There's no better place to view the charismatic orcas of the salmon-eating J, K, and L Pods, and sightings of awe-inspiring transient, or Bigg's, killer whales are at an all-time high. In addition to orcas, humpback whales, minke whales, and gray whales are also frequently seen throughout the year.
A premier whale watching destination located just outside the famed Olympic National Park. In recent years, the waters surrounding Port Angeles have become one of the leading destinations for viewing humpback whales in North America. Orcas are often seen feeding in the area as well. From Port Angeles, the comfortable Island Explorer 4 can head west into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, east toward the San Juan Islands, or north toward Race Rocks Ecological Preserve - no passport required! Best location for guests coming from Tacoma and the Olympic Peninsula!
The greatest whale watching value in the state - just 30 minutes from Seattle! This special limited season focuses on gray whales that migrate along the west coast, stopping to feed in local waters on their way back to Alaska. While it's possible to see orcas, minkes, or humpbacks as well, our Everett tour is specifically designed to highlight the feeding gray whales of Puget Sound.
