Full description

Discover the gray whales off the coast of Seattle on a relaxing boat tour. Be on the lookout for these giants of the sea as you learn about their biology and behaviors from an expert naturalist onboard.

Board the boat at Pier 69 in downtown Seattle. With the guidance of Clipper’s expert onboard naturalist, you will be on the lookout for these huge special whales as they migrate north. Learn about their astounding annual migration from the Baja Peninsula to the Bering Sea. Discover interesting facts about their behaviour and intelligence. As you cruise offshore of Seattle and Langley on Whidbey Island, try to spot the whales breaching the surface. The area is popular with grays due to the robust shrimp population. Each March and April, the gray whales detour from their off-shore journey into the Salish Sea to feed and fuel up for the remainder of their journey to Alaska.
