3 Days/2 Nights
Days will be spent viewing wildlife onboard the MV Glacier Spirit. We will spend our nights on San Juan Island in charming Friday Harbor.
The San Juan Islands are famous worldwide as National Geographic’s #3 World Travel Destination, and our tour will connect you with the best of the San Juan Island experience.
The waters around the San Juan Islands are home to orcas (killer whales), minke whales, gray whales, humpback whales, Steller sea lions, porpoise, otters, and a dizzying array of seabirds. Tour Naturalist Bob Boekelheide (formerly Director of the Dungeness River Audubon Center) will be pointing out all the birds for us. In addition to wildlife and bird watching, we will tour fascinating sites on San Juan Island, as well as visit Deception Pass near Whidbey Island.
Wonderful Boat Trip!
We spent 3 days cruising the San Juan Islands looking at seabirds, whales, and wildlife. It was a wonderful time. The crew made sure we were well fed and well-cared for. The captain was professional and very safety-conscious. We had a professional bird guide to help us with sea birds. A wonderful trip all around.
The MV Glacier Spirit is perhaps the most comfortable wildlife vessel in the Pacific Northwest. It features comfortable indoor seating for everyone, a wrap-around outside viewing deck, as well as a snack bar and restroom. Along with viewing whales, we often find bald eagles, harbor seals, California and Steller sea lions, tufted puffins and many other species of marine life.
Whale-wise Whale Watching
Puget Sound Express is a proud member of the Pacific Whale Watch Association (PWWA), dedicated to responsible, sustainable marine wildlife viewing and conservation in the Pacific Northwest. We’re also dedicated to reducing our footprint out there. The Saratoga and Chilkat Express are sound-proofed, hydrofoil jet boats with no propellers, making them the quietest vessels in the whale watch fleet.
