A recent survey ranks whales' bellies ahead of safety deposit boxes and mattresses as the preferred place to store valuables. Experience one of nature's most priceless resources with today's Groupon: for $55, you get admission for one aboard a five- to six-hour orca whale-watching tour from Mystic Sea Charters (a $99 value).

Departing from the waterfront town of Anacortes daily from May 25 through October 8, the 100-foot Mystic Sea, an eco-friendly vessel with a heated cabin, cruises through Guemes Channel and into the San Juan Islands in search of beautiful mammalian hydrobeasts. A knowledgeable guide narrates the tour with nuggets of whale wisdom, and because Mystic Sea Charters uses Whale Spotting Service tracking data, you're almost sure to spot some dorsals. Lunch service and a plethora of onboard coffee, tea, and pastries feeds humanoid hunger as gazes are averted to whale body-slams and heads are reminded of their inferior ability to spew water from any of their nine holes. If the entire tour passes by without a single whale viewing, customers are entitled to a rain check on another day.

Mystic Sea Charters

If there’s a whale breaching in the protected waters of the Saratoga Passage or Salish Sea, there’s a good chance the passengers on on the M/V Mystic Sea’s 100-foot vessel will see the splashy spectacle. The company’s two-and-a-half- to three-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.

Customer Reviews

Very friendly, professional staff - this is what they do and they do it well. Definitely read what to bring - it is windy and chilly out on deck.

We really enjoyed our trip with Mustic Sea Charters. We were a little late getting to the boat and they coached us in and waited as we ran down to the boat. Friendly, warm, informative, and knowledgable about the local area and hunting down the Orcas. We felt like we were in expert hands, and had a fantastic time. Would go again with them in a heartbeat!
