U.S. Coast Guard–certified Captain Brett pilots the open-topped Island Whaler through picturesque waters to view the multitudinous wildlife found in and around Deception Pass. The open deck and low-slung cabin of the seafaring sloop grants easy, panoramic views of the steep, rocky landscape. Throughout the 2.5- to 3-hour whale-watching tour, spritely fauna with unevolved senses of stage fright perform lively, natural ballets as visitors potentially lock eyes with bald eagles, seals, porpoises, gray whales, and pacific-northwest giant squid. Passengers collaborate to identify members of the local ecosystem with help from the tour’s wildlife guide or deep-seated memories of Jack Hanna on The Tonight Show. Captain Brett chimes in against the breeze with educational details about the pass’s historical significance, structures, and ecology. Tours take place from the beginning of March to the end of April, departing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Oak Harbor at 8:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.

Deception Pass Tours

The tenure of US Coast Guard–certified Captain Brett as captain of the Island Whaler began as a dream. In the course of nine months, he had a recurring dream about an unusual flatbed boat, which replaced his normal dreams about beating up Napoleon with Horatio Hornblower. More than a year after the visions stopped, Brett discovered his fantasy boat sitting in a parking lot in Anacortes. He now owns that boat and pilots the open-topped Island Whaler through picturesque waters to view the multitudinous wildlife found in and around Deception Pass.

The open deck and low-slung cabin of the seafaring sloop grants easy, panoramic views of the steep, rocky landscape.

Throughout the tours, spritely fauna with unevolved senses of stage fright perform lively, natural ballets as visitors potentially lock eyes with bald eagles, seals, porpoises, gray whales, and Pacific Northwest giant squid.
