We offer daily scheduled Whale Watching Tours from the Islanders Resort, Lopez Island, WA. We head out from May to September in search of Orcas Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, and Gray Whales. We spot whales on over 95% of our trips. The best sightings for Orca are in June, July, August and September. Humpbacks and minkes are possible spring, summer, and fall and Grays are possible in the spring and fall. 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 whale we can get closer to them and stay longer. You will get plenty of one on one attention from the captain and our trained naturalists because there is never more than 30 people aboard our boats. Our primary vessel is the Blackfish II, custom built for whale and wildlife viewing with a heated cabin, top deck, and full restrooms. Our boats are also equipped with hydrophones so we can listen to the whales after we find them. Most tours last between 3 to 4 hours. Combination Whale Watch and Fishing Trips are available for your private group. Hourly rates apply; see the private charter section below or call for details.
