It is officially the start of whale watching season again on Orcas Island, and here at The Landmark, we couldn't be more excited. No matter how many times we see these magnificent creatures out in the wild, each and every encounter is breathtakingly beautiful and special.
Booking a whale watching tour and getting out on the water provides you the best chance to see whales. A whale spotting network is in communication to give up-to-date information and ensure the captains have the best chance of finding where the whales are spending their days. These whale watching trips are also a great way to learn more about the marine life surrounding our islands, as there is often a marine naturalist on board.
Orca whales are not the only wildlife seen on tours either! During these trips, humpback whales, minke whales, gray whales, porpoise, sea lions, seals, and eagles are often spotted.
Orcas Whale Watching Companies
There are a few companies that are based on Orcas for whale watching. Each company is has a slightly different style, are longstanding Orcas Island businesses, and provide great experiences for their guests. No matter which company you choose, you are guaranteed to have an amazing time!
