Puget Sound Express is having a great whale and wildlife watching season so far in 2014. While we wait for the Southern Resident pod of orcas to return to our waters, we’ve been treated to some outstanding shows from transient orcas, sea lions, seals, porpoise, eagles and seabirds.
One of the most impressive displays we’ve seen so far this season was captured by customer Irving Mortensen, who trained his camera on a majestic humpback whale that was breaching near the MV Glacier Spirit. An impressive sight to be sure.
We’re currently running the following tours:
The perfect trip for visitors and travelers with a busy schedule! Departing in the morning, our fast and comfortable 40-seat M.V. Red Head seeks out orcas, minkes, humpbacks, and gray whales to give you a guaranteed whale watching experience in the San Juan Islands.
Our signature tour, this daylong cruise on the M.V. Glacier Spirit combines orca watching with an on-board naturalist, and a tour of the beautiful San Juan Islands. We visit the popular town of Friday Harbor for shopping, island cuisine, and sightseeing. This San Juan Islands trip is also the official passenger ferry route between Port Townsend and San Juan Island, and in addition to seeing killer whales, we often see minke whales, Stellar and California sea lions and Dall’s porpoises.
