Check out the ONLY Seattle whale watching tours that leave direct from downtown at Pier 69! The Salish Sea is one of the world’s largest and biologically rich areas teeming with an array of spectacular wildlife. One of the best places to see transient orca killer whales as well as humpback, gray and minke whales breach, splash, feed and play in their natural habitat. Our popular half-day Seattle whale watching tour runs May – October and is a great option (and the most convenient!) for those visiting Seattle looking for a fun day on the water whale watching. If you’re visiting Seattle in March and April, our Seattle gray whale watching tour provides a unique opportunity to view the gray whale seasonal migration to Alaska.
