OUTER ISLAND EXCURSIONS offer high-quality, unforgettable marine experiences in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. 

Our luxurious, high-speed vessels for small groups of passengers accommodate a more personal experience with the whales and our crew. Our largest vessel hosts 30 passengers maximum to provide our customers the most personal experience with our knowledgable marine naturalists and Captains, as well as the most intimate experience with the whales. Aboard our boats you are able to interact with the Captain, have a say in the itinerary, and have a truly memorable experience with wildlife.

Customers keep coming back to see the whales with us because instead of packing 100 passengers or more on a large, slow boat for a scripted tour, each trip is unique.

Our tours primarily depart from Orcas Island and Anacortes. We also have trips departing regularly from Bellingham, Lopez Island, and The Willows Resort on Lummi Island. For private charters we will pick you up from any location in the region!

We pride ourselves in finding the whales when others can’t!
