Island Adventures has the tour for you, regardless of where you are in Washington state. Our Anacortes departure location is strategically set up to offer the best whale viewing opportunity. Every tour has the opportunity to see up to four types of whales (orcas, minkes, humpbacks, and gray whales). Check out the links below to see which departure location is closest to you!

Anacortes is the homeport to the San Juan Islands and conveniently located only 90 miles north of downtown Seattle. There is no ferry hassle. Tours on San Juan Island require an hour and a half ferry ride each way which can be tricky in the summer months. Our tours depart out of Cap Sante Marina, conveniently located blocks away from downtown Anacortes. Avoid the added expense and hassle of the Washington state ferry system!
