Description

Grab your camera and embark on a deluxe 100-foot tour vessel to spot the majestic Orca whales that are native to the Northwest. This guided tour around the San Juan Islands is completed with a freshly baked lasagna and Caesar salad lunch, and almost-guaranteed whale sightings.

Cruise the deep-blue waters from Bellingham toward the San Juan archipelago and keep your eyes peeled for sea lions, porpoises, bald eagles, and harbor seals basking in the sun on Viti Rocks near Lummi Island. Enjoy the refreshing sea breeze as your captain illustrates the San Juan Islands’ history and notable geological features.

Experienced wildlife guides help point out the orca whales in the surrounding waters—with a typical success rate of 80–90 percent each season. About 90 orcas live in the Northwest year-round, but you may also spot some groups of transient humpback, gray or minke whales passing through the area.

With the scenic open water as a backdrop for lunch, enjoy a meat or vegetable lasagna and Caesar salad lunch —including freshly baked biscuits with honey-butter. Top off your meal with decadent chocalate chip cookes and your favorite Northwest wine, microbrew, or cocktail.

It's something to take off my bucket list. The luncheon was great. iThe Captain and the crew were friendly and very knowledgeable. But it's 6 ½ hours on a boat and it's kinda hard to stay entertained for that long. I just wish the ½ Day cruise had been available on the day we were there.

Beautiful day to see whales .. we were fortunate to see 3 types : Minky, Grey and Humpback whales. Didn’t get to see the Orcas tho but still very happy that we took this cruise ! Friendly staff and crew !!
