The price was reasonable. The experience was great!! I haven't been to the islands outside of Anacortes in many years, so I enjoyed it very much. Everyone on the boat with us was polite and gracious. The captain and naturalist (Dave and Alex) were very knowledgeable about the wildlife we saw. Also, we saw a grey whale, which I have never seen in the wild before. Very exciting!!

This was a last minute decision and it was a good one! Our "Captain" and two assistants were very knowledgable and gave us a lot of information about the wildlife and plants on the trip. While we couldn't cross into Canadian waters because of COVID restrictions, we still saw sea lions and a pod of 7 Orcas, so it was a good sighting!

I had a lot of toruble redeeming the coupons. For me, the website was not intuitive. After I messed up and ordering 4 full price trips, a very courteous woman called to let me know what I had done and helped me to it right.

We had a great afternoon on the water. The crew, Captain Drew, Alex and Lila, were attentive and informative. We saw an orca family, as well as an island of stellar sea lions. We responded to a CG call to assist a boat in trouble; the problem was resolved before we arrived, but got the added benefit of going through Deception Pass. This was our second trip with Outer Island Excursions.

We had such a great time. The staff was so knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. When we showed up from Texas we hadn’t registered on their website using our Groupon , but the staff took care of it quickly and let us board the boat and take the boat ride. We were able to see seals, sea lions , a bald eagle and two different orca families .. breathtaking and amazing

We truly enjoyed our excursion and happily saw many whales-a gray and a family of orca, along with sea lions, bald eagles and seals! We loved the crew-Captain Drew and naturalist, Brooke! They were great, we loved every minute of the trip!

About Outer Island Excursions

Outer Island Excursions' 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 saltwater. 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.
