Chances of Seeing
Each Kind of Whale:

Orcas live in the San Juan's all year, and are the most frequently seen whales on all of our tours.

 

Humpback and Gray Whales migrate through the Salish Sea on their journey between colder feeding areas in the north in summer and warmer breeding areas in the south in winter.

Minke Whales live here year round.

Man Kayaking

Kayak Tours

Kayak Tours are fun for everyone from beginners to experts in our stable two-person kayaks with all the necessary gear and a professional guide.

Our Point Doughty Tour leaves from the North end of Orcas Island. No kayak experience is required for this tour and our guides will assist with gear adjustment and basic instruction. We spend about three hours on the water

visiting rugged Point Doughty State Park where

we commonly see harbor seals, porpoises,

sea stars, and bald eagles.

For more experienced paddlers we offer a full day tour of Sucia Island checking in at 9:00 AM where you will be ferried to the island on a high-speed powerboat and enjoy a leisurely paddle of this state park. This remote unihabited state park island is the gem of the San Juans, full of coves and beaches and known for fossils and abundant wildlife. Pack a picnic lunch and water for your excursion that returns to Orcas Island around 5:00 PM 

Kayak Rentals

Kayak Rentals are available by reservation only and come with all the necessary gear for a self guided excursion.

With single and tandem kayaks available in 4 hour, 8 hour, 24 hour, 3 day, and one week increments Outer Island offers options to meet your needs.

Bird Watching Tours

Head out with our experienced Captains and Naturalists for a 4 hour Birding Tour in search of all the amazing bird species that the San Juan Islands have to offer. We adventure out to Smith Island in search of Tufted Puffins as well as other locally known birding hot spots.

No trip to Washington is complete without a whale watch and Outer Islands Excursions is a great choice. Capt Jim, and naturalists Delaney and Sophia were friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable hosts. We saw Orcas, a humpback, seals, sea lions, porpoises and eagles. The boat was a perfect size with both inside and outside viewing opportunities. Such a perfect way to experience the natural beauty of the San Juans.
