We offer daily scheduled Whale Watching Tours from Skyline Marina, Anacortes, WA near Birch Bay and Bellingham. We head out from May to September in search of Orcas Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, and Gray Whales. We spot whales on over 95% of our trips. The best sightings for Orca are in June, July, August and September. Humpbacks and minkes are possible spring, summer, and fall and Grays are possible in the spring and fall. We also frequently encounter sea lions, seals, porpoises, eagles, otters and sea birds. Our boats are the fastest whale watching boats leaving from the mainland and we can accomplish more in 3 to 4 hours than what the big slow boats can do in 6 to 7 hours. 

Our mainland location at 2201 Skyline Way in Skyline Marina just past Skyline Marine Center.
