Effective May 1, 2013 Puget Sound Express is running 4 Hour Orca Watching Tours departing from Port Townsend.
This tour is the perfect trip for visitors and travelers with a busy schedule. 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 this trip – or we’ll give you another trip absolutely free. Learn more about our unconditional guarantee.
Our cruise departs Port Townsend at 10am in the Olympus, our comfortable, high speed tour boat (which has inside seating and outside viewing areas, as well as a snack bar and restroom). We head out to the San Juan Islands – or wherever the whales are if they are in our range. We aim to return around 2pm, but depending on where the orcas are hanging out, we can run under or over that, ranging from 3.5 – 5.5 hours.
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.
