Outer Island Expeditions reviews
Three different types of whales! Spent a wonderful 4 hour trip with Captain Drew and naturalists Dana and Talia. What a great day to see 3 kinds of whales… gray, manky and humpback. We also saw sea..... more »

We went on a tour with this company on 9/12/20 and it was phenomenal. Parking was a breeze, just follow the signs as its right behind their building. Our crew was Matt, Alex, and Angelica. The boat was very comfortable and spacious, and they definitely took social distancing/COVID-19 seriously. They had an interior cabin with a bathroom, snacks for sale, and plenty of room to move around. The boat has a great upper viewing deck with 360 degree views. We were concerned we would not be able to see anything with the smoke that had traveled into the area overnight from the wildfires. We were able to see three Killer Whales, a mother and her two calves and it was absolutely magical. We were so fortunate to even get to see them hunt and kill a porpoise, jumping out of the water multiple times!!! Our guide said she has only seen that one other time as well. This crew did a great job maximizing our time with the whales while maintaining a safe and responsible distance as to not disturb them. Our captain was very professional, gave us a VERY smooth and safe ride. Alex and Angelica spent extra time educating us about the whales, the area, and other animals, as well as answering any questions we had. I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone who is in the Anacortes region.
I think this may be the nicest, most wholesome business I’ve ever been to. The kayaking was phenomenal and the guides were extremely kind. Such a great compliment to our orcas island trip. Long story, but when another patron mistakenly took our car keys such that we were locked out of our vehicle, the owner of Outer Island Excursions stepped up BIG TIME and helped coordinate delivery of our spare pair of keys via Kenmore Air. This prevented us from needing to make the nearly 10 hour round trip to Seattle. If I could give this business more stars I would.
