Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $49 for a whale-watching boat tour for one (a $99 value)
  • $98 for a whale-watching boat tour for two (a $198 value)

Whale watchers climb aboard a 56-foot boat and embark on an approximately 3.5-hour journey into the habitats of killer whales. As USCG-licensed captain Daniel Wilk pilots the vessel, a trained naturalist shares info on the whales and the area’s wildlife, which may include harbor seals and bald eagles cawing off-key renditions of the national anthem.

Orcas Island Eclipse Charters

When the producers of Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home were casting for the roles of coastal marine patrollers, they didn't look to the scores of hopeful actors in Hollywood, opting instead to find boating professionals with real experience. Their search led them to Orcas Island Eclipse Charters founders Dan and Denise Wilk, whose extensive knowledge of aquatic wildlife made them a serendipitous choice for sharing the camera with Hollywood's most famous orca.

Aboard their 56-foot vessel, Dan and Denise continue to share the passion that led them to the big screen in the first place. Their enthusiasm shines through to passengers while they guide tours into the habitats of killer whales and harbor seals. Occasionally, expert guides direct passengers to look up from the water to spot deer on nearby land or bald eagles soaring through the sky above. When asked how they happen upon so many natural specimens on their trips, Dan and Denise would tell you they don't leave their tours up to chance, coordinating excursions with a whale-watching service that pinpoints where the underwater mammals are feeding.

He crew is amazing and have so much knowledge about the wildlife and the islands. The boat is very comfortable and the staff look after your needs.

The crew were fantastic. We didn't get lucky to see killer whales but Captain Hardy made sure that we at least saw other wild life from the boat. We got to see a pair of humpbacks, plenty bald eagles, seals and a falcon with its chicks. Amazing experience - super recommended.

Beautiful day to be in a beautiful boat! Very roomy and comfy. Being able to go up on the upper deck was amazing. Although no orca to be seen this day, we did get to see a couple humpbacks, sea lions and eagles! Spectacular time nonetheless!
