Deer Harbor Charters is a small family owned Whale & Wildlife Tour Company established on Orcas Island in 1988.  In 1997 we expanded our company to also include tours from Rosario Resort. Although the name was never changed, Deer Harbor Charters operates tours from both locations; Deer Harbor Marina and Rosario Resort & Spa.
