According to University of Washington meteorologist Cliff Mass, the winter of 2012/2013 will go down in the history books as The Most Boring Winter in Seattle History. On the plus side, no big stormy events. On the other hand, nothing to terribly interesting going on. Which is why we are very excited to begin our 2013 Gray Whale Tours in March.
Each spring, grays migrate from the southern waters north to Alaska. On the way, they pass through the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound, providing an excellent opportunity for folks to visit and learn about these whales.
These tours run just about 4 to 5 hours, and the waters that we travel in are protected and usually calm. Since it’s spring in the Pacific Northwest, we recommend being ready for just about anything!
This is a guaranteed tour, meaning that if you do not see gray whales on your tour we will issue a voucher good for another tour.
