September 11 – 17

What a wonderful week of (mostly) calm winds and awesome adventures in the Salish Sea! We had killer whale sightings on 7 of our 8 tours this week, along with some wonderful humpback whale encounters.  We had visits from the T075B, T018, T137, T037A, T060, and T123 families of killer whales this week. Although it […]

September 4 – September 10

September whale watching in Anacortes is here! September is easily my favorite month of the year to be on the water…not necessarily because the whales are better, or more plentiful, but because the boat traffic dies down after Labor Day, and most of the time the wind is very calm.  We encountered all four species […]

August 28 – September 3

Anacortes whale watching was amazing again this week.  Our incredible stretch of orca whale sightings continued this week as we had visits from the T059, T137, T037A, T099, and T065 families of orcas. This is easily the best stretch of killer whale sightings I’ve ever experienced in my career in whale watching here in the […]

August 20- August 27

The amazing orca whale watching continued this week as we encountered killer whales on 9 of our 10 tours.  We had visits from the T060, T099, T036A, T069, T046B1, and T065A families. It’s been really awesome catching up with the T60 family on multiple occasions, many of which we’ve been able to witness a few […]

August 14- August 20

Holy orcas!!! This week was perhaps the best stretch of orca whale watching I have experienced in 10 years of driving boats professionally. We encountered orcas on all 10 of our tours this week. We had visits from the T075B, T077, T018, T101, T036A, T038, T046, T073A, T099, T034, T037, T060 and T069 families of […]

August 7- August 13

Summer whale watching in Washington is going by fast! We are trying to soak up every minute of our whale and wildlife encounters while we are on the water!  This week we had some great killer whale and humpback encounters. We had a humpback whale named “Yogi” hanging around the San Juan Islands a lot, […]

July 31- August 6

August whale watching in the San Juan Islands started off with a bang with plenty of whales around this week! We sighted killer whales on six out of twelve tours this week, and humpbacks on 8 out of 12, and we also had a few great minke whale encounters!  In the orca department, we had […]

July 24- July 30

It was quite the mixed bag of whale watching in the Salish Sea this week, with some great humpback encounters, killer whale encounters, and two tours where we didn’t see any whales at all! This week we had visits from the T034, T037, T065B, and T137 families of killer whales. The highlight though, was an […]

July 17- July 23

We had a mix of orcas and humpbacks on our tours this week, but it was the humpbacks that stole the show! On Wednesday we found two humpback whales known as “Frankenstein” and “Zephyr” down in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Our encounter started off somewhat uneventful, but just as we were about to […]

July 10- July 16

Another wonderful week of adventuring in the Salish Sea! We had lots of amazing wildlife encounters this week.  The T036A family of orca whales was around a lot this week, as we encountered them on several tours. It’s awesome to have them in the neighborhood for so long. This family of 6 whales is led […]
