More than whale watching!
Our guaranteed whale watching tours have made us the #1 whale watching company in the Pacific Northwest, but our specialty tours offer a chance to enjoy a few hours on the water. Whether it's a private charter for your corporate retreat or an unforgettable 4th of July, we've got a tour for you!
Extended Range Tour
Experience a full day at sea on our 10-12 hour extended-range tour! This tour's duration enables us to travel deep into the western Strait of Juan de Fuca in search of massive groups of humpback whales. With the additional time on the water, we’ll have the opportunity to venture further than any of our other tours. If you’re used to watching whales in the San Juan Islands, this tour will leave you speechless!
4th of July Fireworks Cruise
You've seen fireworks from your lawn chair or picnic blanket, but have you ever been on the water to celebrate USA's birthday? At Island Adventures, we're offering a special 4th of July whale, wildlife, and fireworks cruise out of Anacortes. The 4-5 hour tour will depart at 5 PM in search of whales and wildlife before sunset, then we'll position ourselves for a front-row view of the fireworks display. Our full menu will be available and features Ivar's Clam Chowder, Beecher's Mac and Cheese, Nathan's hot dogs, nachos, beer, wine, and more!
We'll craft a custom adventure for your next family, company, or crew outing.
Island Adventures is known as the area's premier whale watching company, but we also offer private charters throughout the year. The Island Explorer 5 features a full walk around lower deck, two upper viewing decks, great sound systems, heated cabins, galley service, two restrooms, and the best crew in the area. Whether it is a whale watching tour, wedding, corporate team building event, or a family reunion, give us a call and we will help you set up an event your guests will never forget.
