Anacortes is home port to one of the world’s largest whale watching fleets, with two daily sailings in season. Each sailing typically lasts a half-day, during which riders are introduced to the beauty of the San Juan Islands. Educators provide a running commentary about geography, island history, and Puget Sound’s rich biology. You’ll see local orca pods, along with dolphins, seals, and other resident wildlife.
I have not yet reviewed a whale watching cruise out of Anacortes. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, give these a try:
