Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

Whale Guarantees are temporarily suspended due to the closure of the Canadian border.  Though we still see whales on a vast majority of our tours, the limitations these border restrictions place on our tours prevent us from our normal routes and force us to temporarily alter this policy.
We are very proud of our guarantee and will restore it as soon as the borders reopen.   Thank your for your understanding.


Our main headquarters is on Orcas Island, WA, at Brandt’s Landing Marina in Smuggler’s Villa Resort




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

Our luxurious, high-speed vessels for small groups of passengers can 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 whale watching boat 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 our whale watching tours 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, including our Orcas Island fishing charter, we will pick you up from any location in the region including Seattle, San Juan Island and Rosario! Contact us also about custom charter Orcas Island fishing trips!

We pride ourselves in finding orca whales when others can’t and fishing charters for all skill levels!
