Spring has sprung – and orcas are waiting for you! Our 2012 orca season begins on May 1 and our family is excited about showing you the amazing Southern Resident Pod of orcas (killer whales) in the San Juan Islands.
Three generations of our family have helped visitors spend time with orca whales – that experience and dedication makes it possible for us to guarantee that you’ll see whales on the trip – or we’ll give you another trip absolutely free.
Our 4 Hour Guaranteed Killer Whale Watching Tour is the perfect trip for visitors and travelers with a busy schedule!
We depart Port Townsend both in the morning (10pm) and in the afternoon (2:30pm). We head out to the San Juan Islands to wherever the whales are in Olympus, our comfortable, high speed tour boat.
The trip features inside seating and outside viewing areas, as well as a snack bar and restroom. Just like in our full day tour, there is a trained marine naturalist guiding you through the many sites along the way, and if the whales are “singing,” you’ll be able to hear them with our hydrophone.
2012 is here! We hope it will be an outstanding year for you and your family.
The past year was a special year for whale watching and wildlife in the Pacific Northwest. We had our resident orca pods nearby, of course, but we also were graced by loads of humpback whales, gray whales, minkes - and of course all of the amazing birds that visit the region.
Right now, our boats are receiving their annual maintenance work. However, we’ve opened up registration for our spring Gray Whale tours, our summer full-day trips to San Juan Island (Friday Harbor), and our Guaranteed 4-Hour Whale Watching tours.
You can reserve your trips online 24/7, or call us at 360-385-5288 and we’ll help you over the phone.
We also want to remind you that we book dozens of custom group tours every year for residents and visitors from around the world. So if you’re looking for that custom touch – we love creating itineraries that your special event or gathering.
Captain Pete reports from the Olympus that son Christopher used his ears and hydrophones on Glacier Spirit to locate the J Pod orcas this morning. Listen to Pete’s report for the inside scoop on how whale watching happens on foggy mornings!
