Coffee, tea, and light lunch fare are available for purchase on the ship which launches from Anacortes, WA at 10:45 a.m. from May 4 to October 8. Guests may bring their own lunch if they like, but ice chests are not permitted.
Mystic Sea Charters
If there’s a whale breaching in the protected waters of the San Juan Islands or Salish Sea, there’s a good chance the passengers on the M/V Mystic Sea’s 100-foot vessel will see the splashy spectacle. The company’s five- to six-hour tours have an impressive track record when it comes to spotting the gargantuan mammals, introducing tour-goers to different species of whale up to 99% of the time. Onboard the ship, a naturalist divulges facts about ocean life as passengers watch for whales from the heated cabin or from the deck, which has 4-foot railings so guests can hold on if whales start singing and dancing to the hit song “Rock the Boat.” The company promises that voyagers will see at least one gray, orca, humpback, or minke whale, depending on the season. If not, they’ll receive a follow-up whale-watching tour for free.
