Quality cruises set us a notch above the rest

As we value quality over quantity, we limit the number of people on our daily cruises to 60 instead of filling the boat to maximum capacity (77 people); this allows for more space so everyone can be comfortable while cruising through the San Juan Islands. 
The resident Orca Whales of J, K, and L pods can move up to 100 miles in a day, so some days they are only 20 minutes away from Anacortes, and other days they can be three hours away - near Victoria or Point Roberts.  If we need to go the extra mile or take the extra hour to get you whales, we will. We don’t make claims to be number one – we just find you whales and make sure you have fun doing it!

Guaranteed Whale Sightings - How Does this Work?

If you don't see an Orca, Humpback, Minke, or Gray Whale, your next whale watch with us is free.  (This guarantee does not apply to private or group charters). No Cash refund.

SAFE stands for Safe, Affordable, Fun, & Educational Whale Watching

Only SAFE members have the exclusive use of a float plane and whale spotter pilot.  The plane flies over the San Juans in the AM if needed and calls directly to the M/V Mystic Sea and other SAFE member boats to report the latest Orca Whale updates. This, in addition to our Pacific Whale Watch Association sighting network hotline and our knowledgeable captains and crew, enables us to guarantee whale sightings.

Go with the best, go with a SAFE member!
