Destinations: Whale watching from Anacortes

Monday, July 1, 2019

Wayne and Lucy Pridemore say they have driven by the Island Adventure whale watching office in Anacortes dozens of times.

We decided it was time to give it a try and play the tourist.

Other boats were out on the water

The day was perfect, no wind and no waves, so it was easier to spot the whales from the large catamaran Island Explorer. The boat is almost new and very comfortable. 

Minke baleen whale

The first whale sighting was a Minke baleen whale. 

More orcas from the pod

We were treated throughout the four hour cruise to several sightings of Orca pods.

We both enjoyed the experience.
