This tour allows you to experience whale watching during your visit to Olympic National Park. We depart Port Angeles mid-day; our range includes the San Juan Islands, Victoria, BC, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Along our journey, the wildlife is endless from whales, bald eagles, harbor seals, California and Steller sea lions, tufted puffins and many other species of marine life. We’ll have you back in plenty of time to enjoy Hurricane Ridge, downtown Port Angeles, and the other splendors of the Olympic Peninsula.
Amazing! Don’t Hesitate!
A friend and I did the whale watching tour, and it was an INCREDIBLE experience! Every detail is thought through from the friendly check-in person to the dahlias on the tables, the blueberry buckle (a MUST)…The tour guides were excellent and we were so relaxed after the trip we didn’t want to leave! 110% recommend. It’s a joy! Thank you for making this a highlight of the trip!
Our vessels feature comfortable inside seaing for everyone with a heated cabin, an outdoor viewing deck for wildlife, T’V monitors for naturalist presentations, a snack bar and restrooms. Don’t miss our signature, freshly-baked “blueberry buckle.” On-board you will have a trained naturalist that will guide you along the way and explain the scenery, geography, history and wildlife of the area.
