Outer Island Expeditions offers high quality, unforgettable marine experiences in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. We offer tours starting from Orcas Island and Anacortes. Our focus is on a personal experience. Other tour companies will pack you on their big boats for an impersonal and scripted experience. Rather than being barked at on a loud speaker while surrounded by forty or more strangers, try hopping aboard one of luxurious high speed vessels. Our vessels go farther and faster than any other fleet of vessels in the San Juans. We head deep into Canadian waters and out into the Straights of Georgia and Juan de Fuca when necessary. We boast the highest sighting rating of any company in the San Juans for both Spring Gray Whale and Summer Orca sightings. We spot orca or gray whales on almost 95% of our trips! We take pride in finding the whales when others don’t! Aboard our boats you’ll be able to converse with the captain, have a say in the itinerary and your interaction with wildlife viewing will be up close and personal. Our whale watching, fishing and kayak tours start from both Orcas Island and Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine. Click above for a list of tours offered from each location. Even though we are based at these locations we pick up groups from any location in the region. Bellingham, Lopez, San Juan Island, Lummi Island, Anacortes and any where else you might be.
Unlike many other tour companies, Outer Island Expeditions boat tours are able to incorporate many activities into one trip, some of the activities that can be included on a trip are, whale watching, wildlife viewing, charter fishing, crabbing, kayaking, lighthouse tours, island tours and gourmet meals served on an island park. We are the only tour company in the region that offer trips like these. We’ll put together a day for you that you’ll never forget.
