On the first day, check into your marina-side accommodations, only half a block from the boat landing, and then venture out to explore the sights of Port Townsend! Select your lunch option from one of three popular restaurants then stroll through the streets of our beautiful Victorian seaport with boutique shopping and historic buildings while enjoying a handmade treat from Elevated Ice Cream and Candy Shop.

The next morning, climb aboard an exciting four-hour day cruise to search out Orca and Minke whales as well as Stellar and California sea lions and Dal’s porpoise with the help of the on-board naturalist. (You may purchase a $10 guarantee on board for a return whale watch trip if you do not see whales.)
