Going Green Commitments

Whales Rock! Enjoy a year-round, six-passenger, personalized whale and wildlife adventure of a lifetime out of Friday Harbor. Join Captain Hobbes who grew up on the water in England and has been operating whale watch tours and passenger vessels in the San Juan Islands for 12 years. Come aboard 'Natsilane' named after an orca whale legend, a 30' Albin fast-express cruiser, and enjoy a comfortable heated cabin, indoor and outdoor seating, restroom and snacks.
Come respectfully experience the wildlife and ecosystems of the islands -- orca whales, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, harbor porpoises, Dall's porpoises, bald eagles, sea birds and sometimes minke whales, gray whales and even humpback whales. Watch whales and help whales...learn about these magnificent mammals and what we can do to help ensure their survival. Tours depart 1 to 3 times daily, depending on the season.
