Enjoy Orca whales in their natural habitat. We observe these majestic creatures as they hunt, play and go about their day.
We saw humpback whales more this past season than we ever have before. Is this a trend or was last season a fluke? Photo by Captain Cameron aboard Squito, 10 min. from Deer Harbor.
The U.S.C.G. certified SQUITO is the first whale watch boat in the San Juan Islands. Comfortable inside seating as well as outside viewing decks make Squito a great all-weather boat.
Stella Sea Lions feed on fish, squid and octopus. We photographed this Sea Lion as it caught a large octopus.
We also do day sails on a reproduction of an Eastport Pinkey gaff rigged sloop designed in the late 1800’s
These transient Orcas were spotted cruising the shore of Stuart Island. A calf can be seen swimming along side the adult whales.
Deer Harbor Charters is simply the best way to see and learn about Orca whales and other marine wildlife of the San Juan Islands. Daily educational narrated trips with experienced captain/naturalists aboard. We are exclusively the only whale and wildlife tour company leaving from Rosario and Deer Harbor Marina.
Deer Harbor Charters celebrates it’s third decade of whale watching and marine wildlife tours in the San Juan Islands. We’ll cruise through protected waters in search of Orca whales and Minke whales.
