We most often sail the Saratoga for this tour.
This tour allows you to experience all the Olympic Peninsula has to offer. Being the fastest guaranteed whale watch on the Peninsula, you’ll have more time to explore Olympic National Park, Sequim Lavender Fields, Hurricane Ridge and much more. This tour departs Port Townsend both in the morning (10:30am) and in the afternoon (during the summer at 3pm). Departing Port Townsend give us an endless opportunity to travel to see whales. Our range includes the San Juan Islands, Victoria or even the Puget Sound.
Amazing! Don’t Hesitate!
A friend and I did the whale watching tour from Port Townsend 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!
The Saratoga features 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.” 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. 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.
