6-Passenger All-Day Ecosystem, Wildlife & Whales Tour
Be part of an intimate group of no more than 6 guests, on a 6-hour immersive exploration of the ecosystem and stunning scenery surrounding the San Juan Islands. Learn about the diverse wildlife of the Salish Sea as we search for the widest variety of species, including whales that may be in the area on any given day. The more time you spend on the water, the more you will see.
About the Tour
This tour is a great opportunity to spend a full day on the water with an intimate group of no more than six passengers. The extra time will allow us a lot more flexibility than our shorter tours to spend more time experiencing the diversity of this amazing ecosystem.
These immersive exploration tours are perfect for photographers, nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, whale geeks & wildlife freaks or anybody else who wants to spend some quality time on the water.
These tours depart from Snug Harbor Resort, an easy drive or taxi from downtown Friday Harbor. Located on peaceful Mitchell Bay on the west side of the island, it has long been the preferred departure location for wildlife tours. Your experience begins right from the dock viewing wildlife inside the beautiful protected bay. Many wildlife habitats lie within close proximity to this unique departure point.
Please plan to check-in 30 minutes prior to departure time.
Custom-Designed Ecotour Boats
Your tour will be onboard Imagine, a custom-designed vessel we had purpose-built for wildlife viewing and photography tours. Imagine offers 360-degree views and ample viewing space from anywhere onboard, including the comfortable cabin. The boat also has a head, or marine bathroom, for your convenience.
