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.

Customer Reviews

I had a great time on the recent outing my husband, friends, and I had with Outer Island Expeditions. We saw a bunch of whales, our guide was great (knowledgable and friendly), and not to mention how beautiful our surroundings were! Would definitely recommend!

We happened to pick a beautiful day in the San Juans and Captain Troy was an excellent guide.

It made me really happy to see that the tour boat operators reminded each other about keeping enough distance from the animals. I also loved that they clearly knew a lot about what they do and could give us information about the animals we were seeing. Thanks for a great experience!
