TOURS FROM THE WILLOWS INN

We are thrilled to offer whale watching tours from The Willows Inn on Lummi Island. Meet our vessels as they charge up directly on the beach in front of the Willows to head out on an adventure of a lifetime. From April to October we search for Orca whales, humpback whales, gray whales, and minke whales and spot them on over 97% of our trips. We also encounter sea lions, seals, porpoise, eagles, otters and many sea birds.

Map to The Willows Inn

We meet at the Willows Inn at the beach. Walk directly onto the beach and prepare for a thrill as the boat arrives charging up on the sandy shore! Due to the inherent nature of beach landings, tours departing from the Willows must take place in calm weather. We recommend close-toed shoes that you don’t mind if they get a little sandy or wet.

MORE ABOUT WHALE WATCHING

We offer daily scheduled Whale Watching Tours from The Willows Inn, Lummi Island, WA. We head out from April to October in search of Orcas Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, and Gray Whales. We spot whales on over 97% of our trips. The best sighting for Orca are in June, July, August and September and the best sighting for Humpback Whales are in April and May. Humpbacks are also seen in September and October. We also frequently encounter sea lions, seals, porpoise, eagles, otters and sea birds. Our boats are the fastest whale watching boats leaving from the mainland and we can accomplish more in 3 or 4 hours than what the big slow boats can do in 6 to 7 hours. We see whales more often than the big boats and once we find the whales we can stay longer. You will get plenty of one on one attention from the captain and our trained naturalists because there is never more than 26 people aboard our boats. All our primary vessel the Blackfish II is custom built for whale and wildlife viewing with a heated cabin, top deck, and full restroom. Our boats are also equipped with hydrophones so we can listen to the whales after we find them with most tours last between 4 to 5 hours. Combination Whale Watch and Fishing Trips are available for your private group. Hourly rates apply; see the charter fishing section or call for details.
