About 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.
