Island Explorer 4
The Island Explorer 4 is 85' long, 22' wide with many of the same great features: large heated cabin, full walk-around lower deck, and huge upper viewing deck. Island Explorer 4 is the favorite boat for many of our guests; 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 La Conner tours. Experience the unplugged version of the San Juan Islands aboard the spacious Island Explorer 4!
