Seattle, WA – July 2, 2015 – The Clipper Vacations Whale & Sealife Search whale watching excursion is off to a thundering start with 100 percent whale sightings for the month of June.

The San Juan Clipper is conveniently located at Pier 69 on Seattle’s waterfront, and is the only whale watching excursion to depart directly from Seattle. The San Juan Clipper offers unmatched views of the San Juan Islands as well as the local wildlife. With three decks to choose from, both indoor and outdoor, passengers can choose how they want to observe the whales and other wildlife. The 360-degree view from the top deck ensures passengers will have the perfect vantage point for when the whales reveal themselves.

This has been an exciting year for both Southern Resident and Transient Orcas so far. To date, four new orca calves have been born amongst both the Southern Resident and Transient Orca populations. In December, orca calf J50 was born to 42-year-old J16, making her the oldest known orca mother.

Each whale watching excursion includes a two-hour stop in Friday Harbor, where passengers have the opportunity to dine, shop and explore the historic town.

The Clipper Vacations Whale & Sealife Search departs directly from Pier 69 in Downtown Seattle, with daily departures through September 7 and Saturdays and Sundays September 8 through October 4.
