Welcome to the Wild West of whale watching in Washington.

Port Angeles is a premier whale watching destination located just outside the popular Olympic National Park. In recent years, the surrounding waters have become one of the leading destinations for viewing humpback whales in North America. Both mammal-eating and salmon-eating orcas are often seen in the area as well.

What's the Weather like? How to Prepare

Port Angeles sees considerably less rain than other areas in Western WA.  In the summer months, the temperature averages between 60 and 80 degrees fahrenheit.  Even though the weather can feel warm on land, we always recommend bringing layers – sweatshirts and jackets – as it feels 10-20 degrees cooler on the water.  Rain doesn't have a negative impact on our tours as our excursion vessels are set up to go out in the elements and have lots of indoor space and cover.
