2017 – The Year of the Transient

2017 was a big year for Island Adventures. We were entering our 21st year of running whale watching tours, opening a new office in Port Angeles, launching a new program in La Conner, and welcoming the newest, most state-of-the-art whale watching vessel in the area – Island Explorer 5. We saw more transient killer whales in 2017 than any other year in Island Adventures' history, as well as witnessing the "Humpback Comeback."

Enjoy the photos below, all of which were taken by the amazing staff aboard the Island Explorer 5, Island Explorer 3, and Island Explorer 4!

The waters surrounding our departure locations offer some of the most diverse whale and wildlife viewing on the west coast. Onboard each of our tours, an experienced naturalist helps identify all of the whales, wildlife, and rich history that this area holds!
