Wind Down to Wildlife Tour
Join a small, intimate group of no more than 12 – 16 passengers on a 2-hour, evening adventure. Enjoy the quiet evening hours on the water as we take in wildlife habitats, historic harbors, and picturesque bays.
About the Tour
Wind down your day with an evening, 2-hour excursion to nearby wildlife habitats and take in the stunning scenery in the evening lighting.
Our adventure starts with a short voyage through the beauty of Mosquito Pass into Roche Harbor Resort, a picturesque seaside village steeped in rich history. We will make a 20 minute stop at the resort where you can check out the lush gardens or purchase provisions while the captain buys the boat a drink. From there we will venture to a variety of dynamic wildlife habitats and take in the evening beauty of the San Juan Islands.
If you are joining one of our other tours, this is a great chance to experience this dynamic ecosystem in the special evening lighting.
This tour is also a perfect fit for families with young, curious kids who are looking to create some forever family memories without spending a half-day or full day 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.
