Meet the Northwest's Finest Fleet
The Island Adventures fleet are the perfect excursion vessels for whale watching in the Salish Sea and Puget Sound. They are fast, safe, and comfortable - all with full upper viewing decks, walk-around lower decks, and indoor heated cabins with his and her's restrooms.
Island Explorer 5
The west coast's best whale watching vessel is now departing from the homeport of the San Juan Islands.
The Island Explorer 5 is the most state-of-the-art vessel on the entire west coast, boasting impressive range and high-tech electronics.
Island Explorer 4
Island Explorer 4 features with a large heated cabin, full walk around lower deck, and huge upper viewing deck. The IE4 is the favorite boat for many of our guests as she is quick, very maneuverable, and can go places that other larger vessels cannot. Her shallow draft allows her to navigate narrow passages making her perfect for our Everett and Port Angeles tours.
