Year-round tours, four convenient departure locations.

Island Adventures has the tour for you, regardless of where you are in Washington state. Our five departure locations – Anacortes, Everett, La Conner, Port Angeles, and Seattle – are strategically set up to offer the best whale viewing opportunity. Every tour has the opportunity to see up to five types of whales (resident orca, transient killer whale, minke, humpback, and grey). Check out the links below to see which departure location is closest to you!

Anacortes, WA

4-5 Hour Guaranteed Whale Watch Trips

Tours run February 17th through December, 2018

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!

Port Angeles is strategically located on the north coast of the Olympic Peninsula.   If you're staying near the Olympic National Park or are west of Seattle, Port Angeles is the departure location for you!  If you're in Tacoma, skip the traffic of downtown Seattle an drive up the peninsula for one of the best whale watching locations in Washington state!

Everett, WA

Only 30 miles north of Seattle

3 Hour Guaranteed Whale Watch Tours

Tours run March 3rd through May 6th, 2018

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. 

Check in behind Anthony's Homeport Restaurant:
1726 W. Marine View Drive, Everett, WA 98201

Feel free to park anywhere other than the two-hour parking.  We recommend parking in the 72 hour or Marina Visitor parking stalls.
