Island Adventures Whale Watching

The early Spring (March, April, May) provides one of the best whale watching opportunities in Washington. Over 20,000 Gray whales migrate North up the West Coast and some find the rich feeding grounds near the South end of Whidbey Island. On our tours we often see the same whales year after year. Island Adventures works closely with Cascadia Research Group to catalogue all of the new and returning whales each season.whale

Guests aboard the Island Explorer will learn to identify individual whales and have the opportunity to experience a huge variety of wildlife along the way. We commonly see Harbor Seals, Sea Lions, Dall’s and Harbor porpoise, Bald Eagles, Osprey and many varieties of sea and shore birds.

Our blog is archived back to 2003. Check out our Spring tours from past seasons in March and April to know what to expect this time of year.

Island Adventures has been offering spring Gray whale tours for over a decade. Departing from Everett our guests enjoy the calm protected waters of Possession Sound, Saratoga Passage and Port Gardner Bay. Because of the calm water and high concentration of whales this time of year, our Everett Gray Whale tours have a 99.5% sighting success rate. To reserve your spot,visit the Island Adventure Whale Watching website.
