Anacortes Tour Times and Pricing
One of the best opportunities to see wild orcas in the world is right here in the Salish Sea. The booming population of mammal-eating Bigg's killer whales feeds throughout the region year-round. In addition to killer whales, humpback whales, minke whales, and gray whales are also frequently seen throughout the year along with a variety of other marine wildlife.

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 that visit for just a few short months each year.
