This is the tour that started them all! We've been operating whale watch adventures from Anacortes since 1996. Our flagship tour got a major upgrade in 2017 with the addition of the Island Explorer 5. This brand new, state of the art catamaran is the fastest in the fleet and offers three viewing decks for an unparalleled view. Anacortes is one of the best places in the world to see wild orcas.
