What's included

  • Or for $79, regularly $159, go on a full-day kayak tour to the pristine Sucia Island, a top boating destination "considered the crown jewel" of Washington's park system (Washington State Parks). Kayakers will be shuttled to Sucia by boat from Orcas Island and will stop by various wildlife-viewing locations on the way. Once on the island, you'll get a brief lesson and kayak for two to three hours, then stop at a beach for a lunch break (pack a lunch -- it's not included).
  • Calm, picturesque Sucia Island is replete with caves, fossil beds and sandstone formations, as well as a wide variety of wildlife like osprey, porpoises, river otters, harbor seals, and occasionally even orca whales.
  • The three-hour trips depart twice daily, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.; full-day trips depart at 9 a.m. and return by approximately 3:30 p.m. Both trips leave from Smuggler's Villa Resort on Eastsound.

As much as I would have enjoyed the whale watching tour, I was not aware that it was nearly a 3.5 hour drive from Seattle just to arrive at the departure destination. As I was traveling from Iowa and not familiar with the area, I booked a tour that I wasn't able to take.

The Outer Island people were very gracious and helpful when I notified them that we would not be able to attend our scheduled tour. They offered to try to find someone to take our spots and I have them the Pin numbers from the voucher.

It was amazing, the guide and the captain and we saw many orcas.

The guides, the area, the perfect weather.

Very professional, but easy to work with and to talk to.

captain and boat were very nice and they found a large pod of transient orcas for us to view. Captain had lots of great information.

The booking process and customer service were severely lacking. I purchased 6 vouchers then found out they had exclusions on how many could be used on one sailing. This wasn't disclosed in the offer before purchase. Also, the person I spoke with on the phone was very rude and unwilling to help or make the situation work for both of us.
