  • San Juan Excursions
    A tiny ripple glides along the smooth-as-glass water, alerting captain Pete to the fact that he and his passengers are about to have company. Sure enough, within seconds a group of glossy black fins breaks through the sea in a silent, synchronized ballet. A native Washingtonian who has spent his entire life on the water, captain Pete orchestrates San Juan Excursions to grant guests the chance to go head-to-head with nature in moments such as these. As marine naturalists certified by the Whale Museum’s Naturalist Training Program, captain Pete’s crew of passionate guides take to the peaceful waters of the Puget Sound to entertain boatloads of guests with informative facts about area wildlife witnessed during excursions. The team’s passion for nature informs its low-impact approach to whale and wildlife watching, which is exemplified in the Odyssey, the company's tour boat. Originally a U.S. Navy search-and-rescue vessel forged in 1941, the craft is fueled by biodiesel when possible and maintains a low propeller RPM to minimize the Bono moans it releases into the water column. Though San Juan Excursions specializes in whale watching, it also sends adventurers forth to explore the waters on their own steam during sea-kayak tours.

  • Five Star
    The Salish Sea hosts one of the larger killer-whale gatherings on the planet. Home to three large pods of fish-eating resident orcas and pods of transient orcas that hunt for larger mammalian game. Recent years have seen a boost in the population of Southern Resident Killer Whales, with the birth of nine baby whales since December 2014, bringing the total population in the area to 85 known individuals. This is the largest growth in population since 1977, with an average rate of only three babies born annually. Five Star's captains give passengers a glimpse of this underwater entertainment by charting courses through the sea atop stable catamarans outfitted with four separate viewing platforms. From these lookouts, guests may spot the black and white killers, as well as minke, gray, and humpback whales and other marine life. Between sightings, crews keep parties comfortable within the heated cabin by supplying them with complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, and liquefied Herman Melville novels.
