2.5+ and 3+ hour whale-watching sunset tours

Avoid the crowds and travel straight to the whales. From May 16th until September 7th., these tours depart shortly after dinner time, in turn allowing you to view the whales with fewer boats, fewer people, and in a unique atmosphere while the sun is setting. Save time and money by going at the end of the day.

Included in the tour

  • Whale Guarantee program!
  • On-board wildlife identification kits
  • Binoculars, gloves, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, blankets
  • On-board naturalist/biologist
  • On-board washrooms for all of our boats!
  • Hydrophone—you can actually hear the whales!

What to bring

  • Cameras (and their protective casings)
  • extra clothing
  • snacks
  • drinks
  • a smile
  • and a sense of adventure!

Be Aware

Please understand that when we view the wildlife and whales that we are guests in their home and must follow a strict set of viewing guidelines in order to respect their natural life processes. Yes, the whales do get close due to their behaviour, but also can be far away in some instances.

  • we are asked to maintain 200 meters in Canadian waters / 200 yards in American waters from killer whales; 100m from baleen whales.
  • if the whales are along the San Juan Island shoreline then we maintain either 1/4 mile or 1/2 mile around Lime Kiln Park
  • all other islands in the Salish Sea (over 500 of them) we maintain 200 meters (220 yards) if whales are inshore
  • most of the time the whales are out far enough for us to view at the minimum regulatory distances
  • bring a good camera with a zoom lens
  • appreciate that we are dealing with wild animals, including the highly protected (Southern Resident Killer Whales are an endangered speciesa)
