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.

Customer Reviews

We bought this as a gift for my parents. They loved it. The entire experience was positive and unforgetable.

The staff was amazing. We only got to see one whale (the only sighting that day), but they made sure we got to see other wildlife to make up for it. Amazing day.

Amazing trip on the water. The captain and crew did an excellent job of keeping the audience. An awesome day!!! Even my son who dealt with sea sickness wants to do it again!
