Congratulations on making a reservation with the Bishop Victorian Hotel in the heart of historic downtown Port Townsend.

One of the most popular activities for visitors to Port Townsend is whale watching. The waters in between Port Townsend and San Juan Island are home to a group of orcas – or killer whales – called “The Southern Residents.” Visiting these creatures and watching them in the wild is a special treat – and a visitor favorite! Depending on the time of year, we may also see humpback whales, minke whales or even gray whales.

“This was the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen! What a fun fun day – thanks to Pete and Sarah for a great time on the water.” – Kate
