The crew is nice and have good service. It was hard to see whale came out sea surface. only fins from far away. Not as my expectation. All in all, it was fun to take the cruiser and weather was cool at the season.

What a wonderful experience to be with a great crew, full of information that was shared freely. It was incredible when a rarity occurred and one of the whales swam right under the boat! I felt blessed and cried tears of joy.

It was an awesome experience! The staff was great and very knowledgeable. I didn’t realize they’d be teaching us about the wildlife also. We plan on going back.

They are simply THE BEST EVER! I did my second excursion at the end of August and we had the most amazing experience. We were nearly my ourselves with a small family of orcas with a baby. We could hear them coming to the surface and breathing. It was so truly life affirming. Beautiful creatures.

From Our Editors

On a childhood fishing trip with his dad in the San Juan Islands, Shane Aggergaard noticed a group of orcas swimming toward his boat. Rather than steering clear of human contact, they swam directly under the boat—one even looked Shane right in the eye. It was a moment of whale-human connection he never forgot, and nowadays tries to approximate through Island Adventures. The whale-watching tour company, which Shane founded with his wife, Jennifer, brings passengers into close contact with the aquatic mammals of the Pacific Northwest.

Depending on the season, wilderness-savvy guides—who’ve led more than 6,000 collective wildlife tours during their careers—can introduce passengers to minke whales and the San Juan’s three resident orca pods, migrating gray whales, or humpbacks. The Island Explorer boats are not only the best-designed whale watch boats in the area, they are the best maintained. The Island Explorer 3, Island Explorer 4, and Island Explorer 5 feature full walk around lower decks, upper viewing decks, sound systems, heated cabins, galley service, his and her restrooms, and a professional crew.
