The naturalists on board were very knowledgeable and respectful of the Orca's environment. It was a mid sized boat, which was really nice. Our captain was very careful not to get too close to the whales, but they came very close to our boat. It was a perfect trip! I would definately recommend this company, and will travel with them again!

Knowledgeable crew, and nice boat. We saw a humpback whale, a small pod of Orca whales, a tufted puffin, Harbor seals, and other birds. Wonderful excursion!

What You'll Get


Early aquatic explorers traveled the waterways of the world in search of new lands, natural resources, and Waldos. Blaze wake trails with today's Groupon to Outer Island Expeditions in Eastsound. Choose between the following options:

  • For $39, you get a three-hour Point Doughty kayak tour with all equipment included (up to a $79 value, recommended for ages 8 and older).
  • For $79, you get a full-day Sucia Island State Park kayak tour with all equipment included (up to a $159 value, recommended for ages 12 and older).

During a three-hour tour to Point Doughty, fully outfitted kayakers will depart at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. from Smuggler's Villa Resort to explore areas surrounding Orcas Island. Paddling down the north shore to Point Doughty State Park, home to seals, eagles, porpoises, and a variety of shore birds, participants will traverse an area accessible only by kayak and swan-shaped paddleboat. Paddlers will break on the beach to explore and enjoy a view of Mount Baker before heading homeward.

During the all-day Sucia Island State Park tour, aqueous adventurers will depart at 9 a.m. to sight wildlife and paddle the remote open waters of Sucia and Orcas islands. After outfitting fledgling water pilots with kayaks and ample mermaid repellant, instructors will ferry students to Sucia aboard a powerboat, stopping along the way at optimal wildlife-sighting locations. After a brief lesson, kayakers will shove off to explore the land-dappled region during an hour and a half of paddling. Eat lunch at a remote beach and explore the undeveloped island's natural caves, fossil beds, sandstone formations, and variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, osprey, Bigfoots, river otters, harbor seals, sea lions, porpoises, and the occasional orca. After another 90 minutes of paddling, patrons will be shuttled back to Orcas Island.

About Outer Island Expeditions


Outer Island Expeditions' fleet of kayaks and boats safely cruises at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour through frothy crests ebbing amid the striking sights and wildlife of the San Juan islands. Venturing as far as 50 miles into Canadian waters, whale-watching excursions foster personal rapport between patrons and boat-side orcas, gray whales, or humpback whales trying to learn human etiquette for future espionage missions. Fishing charters set sail in search of ocean creatures and potable salt water. Kayak tours explore the scenic north shore of Orcas Island and the beautiful wildlife haven that is Sucia Island State Park. Powerboat tours depart from either Smuggler's Villa Resort on Orcas Island or Skyline Marine Center in Anacortes, WA.
