Year-round tours, two convenient departure locations.

Island Adventures has the tour for you, regardless of where you are in Washington state. Our two departure locations – Anacortes and Everett – are strategically set up to offer the best whale viewing opportunity. Every tour has the opportunity to see up to four types of whales (orcas, minkes, humpbacks, and gray whales). Check out the links below to see which departure location is closest to you!

Anacortes, WA

Only 90 miles north of Seattle

4-5 Hour Guaranteed Whale Watch Trips

Tours run February 15th through November, 2020

Anacortes is the homeport to the San Juan Islands and conveniently located only 90 miles north of downtown Seattle. There is no ferry hassle. Tours on San Juan Island require an hour and a half ferry ride each way which can be tricky in the summer months. Our tours depart out of Cap Sante Marina, conveniently located just three blocks from our main office and gift shop. Avoid the added expense and hassle of the Washington state ferry system!


Main Office and Gift Shop:
1801 Commercial Avenue, Anacortes, WA 98221

1019 Q Avenue, Anacortes, WA 98221

Everett, WA

Only 30 miles north of Seattle

3 Hour Guaranteed Whale Watch Tours

Tours run February 15th through May 16th, 2020

Everett is the best departure in the spring – it's only 30 miles from Seattle and the whales are often right off of the dock!  Our Everett gray whale trips have been running for over a decade.  This tour is one of the reasons why we've been voted the #1 whale watch company in the Pacific Northwest the past seven years.  Whale watching in Everett is like going back in time – lots of whales and very few people.

Please park in the 72-hour visitor parking only.  Cars parked in other parking areas will be towed at the owner's expense.
