$119 for a Salmon- or Bottom-Fishing Trip ($240 Value)

Morning and afternoon trips depart from Orcas Island and run for about 3–6 hours. Admission pricing is per person, but each boat holds up to 6 people.

Salmon fishing trips—held from July 1 until October 30—require the most patience, as catching silver and king salmon can be a waiting game. But fisherman of all levels—including children as young as 4—can easily snag a fish during bottom-fishing trips, which run from now until October 30.

All necessary gear is provided.

Outer Island Expeditions

Outer Island Expeditions' fleet of kayaks and boats safely cruises at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour through frothy crests ebbing amid the striking sights and wildlife of the San Juan islands. Venturing as far as 50 miles into Canadian waters, whale-watching excursions foster personal rapport between patrons and boat-side orcas, gray whales, or humpback whales trying to learn human etiquette for future espionage missions. Tours of Stuart Island's Turn Point lighthouse begin aboard a 22-foot Kodiak skiff, which buoys patrons through 16 miles of waters inhabited by sea lions and porpoises before they disembark and hike to the lighthouse's historical museum. Fishing charters set sail in search of ocean creatures and potable salt water from all of Outer Island Expeditions' four launch points: Smuggler's Villa Resort, Semiahmoo Resort, Lopez Island, and The Willows on Lummi Island.
