Join us for a multi-day tour like no other!
Hop aboard for an all-inclusive cruise with stops on Lopez and San Juan Islands and packed with whales, wildlife, and breathtaking scenery. During these exclusive specialty tours, we reserve the entire Lopez Islander Resort to ensure a more exclusive experience for our guests. These deluxe safaris are offered just once or twice a year and space is limited.
Board the Island Explorer 4 in Anacortes for a 9:00 AM departure and set off on the ultimate San Juans Safari. Breakfast and lunch will be served onboard while we cruise the islands in search of whales and wildlife. We’ll make a stop at the Lopez Islander Resort to drop off luggage and check into your room. Our next port of call will be iconic Friday Harbor for an evening on your own enjoying the town's many shops and restaurants.
Our full day whale and wildlife adventure departs at 8:00 AM with coffee and pastries waiting for you at 7:00 AM! Our itinerary is completely open to see as much as we can in the San Juan Islands. Lunch will be provided by the Lopez Islander Resort with the potential for a picnic lunch on a nearby island. After lunch, it's back to the water for more whales, wildlife, and scenery!
We'll return in the evening for a Pacific Northwest Banquet. Captain Shane will share the proper techniques for cracking and eating Dungeness crab followed by a visit from a local vineyard and brewery complete with perfectly paired tastings. We'll then enjoy a buffet dinner, a slideshow with highlight photos from our trip, and an Island Adventures swag bag giveaway.
Departure on our final day is 11:00 AM, so either relax and sleep in or wake up and experience Lopez Island on your own. Whether it's soaking in the jacuzzi, renting a kayak, or going for a bike ride, there's plenty to see and do just steps from your hotel room.
On the return trip, we'll keep our eyes peeled for more whales and wildlife before returning to Anacortes in the mid-afternoon.
