If you are staying overnight on the Islands you may want to use the services of one of the local outfitters or charter companies listed below. If you want to go whale watching as a day trip from elsewhere in the Puget Sound region, then please go to Mainland Charters and Tours. Also, some operators have departures from both the islands and the mainland.

Remember, whale watching is a popular activity and it is a good idea to call ahead and make reservations in advance of the date you might want to join a whale watching cruise.
