Choose from Three Options

  • $219 for a semiprivate 3.5-hour bottom-fishing charter for two aboard the Kodiak or The Sun Runner boats (a $437.50 value)
  • $299 for a private 3.5-hour bottom-fishing charter for up to four aboard The Loki (a $612.50 value)
  • $389 for a private 3.5-hour bottom-fishing charter for up to six aboard the Blackfish or The Triton (a $787.50 value)

Guides pair up duos with two other fishermen during the semiprivate charter. Depending on season, anglers catch deep-sea dwellers such as halibut, lingcod, and dungeness crab. Charters depart from Orcas Island, accessible by ferry from Anacortes, and trips may be extended for whale watching or picnicking on Sucia Island for an additional fee or execution of a successful narwhal call.

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.
