Check Availability


A high-speed passenger ferry takes you out to the San Juan Islands where a whale watch and a sea-life search await. After an exhilarating expedition, explore charming Friday Harbor with time for both shopping and lunch before returning to Seattle on the Victoria Clipper.

Travel on the Victoria Clipper from Seattle to the San Juan Islands through Puget Sound and the scenic Deception Pass. After arriving in Friday Harbor in the late morning, board the San Juan Explorer for a wildlife excursion in the Pacific Northwest’s island paradise.

There is nothing quite as magnificent as the sight of a pod of orca whales. Be on the lookout for these resident whales and other marine wildlife such as seals, bald eagles, and sea lions while the onboard naturalist shares information about the area's wildlife.

Once back in Friday Harbor, browse the town at your own leisure. Smell the crisp sea air while wandering along the marina, shop at the many galleries and shops, visit the whale museum, and enjoy an outdoor lunch at one of the many restaurants serving up local seafood.
