What to expect

Get on an open boat adventure tour, explore protected waters and discover the islands' abundant wildlife and spectacular beauty. The tour company is the longest operating whale/wildlife tour in the island. It's not the biggest, nor does it strive to be. As an owner operated company, it takes pride in providing a quality tour with a personal touch. Skilled local naturalists make the trips fun, informative and interactive, and the owner/captain is dedicated to making your whale watching and wildlife trip an experience of a lifetime!
At least 5 percent of the profits is pledged for conservation, and education is a key part of the trip. You will certainly come away with memories to last a lifetime and a newfound appreciation for the natural world. The open boat Western Explorer II (newly built in 2018) carries up to 25 guest and is similar to a Zodiac style boat. It is the only boat of its kind in Washington State, offering longer range "expedition style" adventure tours. It is also the only water-jet driven vessel based on San Juan Island.
