SAN JUAN ISLAND CHARTER & WHALE WATCHING

Outer Island Excursions offers customized private charters throughout the San Juan Islands departing directly from Roche Harbor Resort. For guests at Lonesome Cove we can also arrange to pick you up directly! Endless possibilities are available on your custom trip- we can do multiple activities which is unavailable on regular group trips. Our knowledgeable captains and naturalists can guide you in any combination of activities that you choose (time permitting) such as: whale watching, salmon fishing, bottom fishing, crabbing, remote island stops for picnics or nature walks, kayaking, fine dining, photography, lighthouse tours, birdwatching, wildlife viewing geocaching, and more. Feel free to call us to discuss options and we can help you design the ultimate San Juan Islands experience!

Our vessels are the fastest in the San Juans so we can travel throughout the San Juan Islands and even into the Gulf Islands of Canadian waters. We have many vessels to accommodate your group size and the type of activities you want to do on your custom trip.

PRIVATE CHARTER & ORCA WHALE WATCHING RATES

Custom charter rates are determined by the vessel and duration of your trip. Rates below reflect the minimum cost for a private charter on any given vessel. If you choose to extend your trip for additional time to include an island stop on your trip there is a lower rate for when the boat is parked (wait time) than the regular running time when the vessel is underway. If you choose to include fishing or crabbing on your private charter we recommend fewer people to compensate for the additional fishing equipment provided.
