About this Trip

Share the Sound with some 35 ton visitors on a Seattle gray whale watching tour aboard the San Juan Clipper departing direct from downtown Seattle’s Pier 69! With the guidance of FRS Clipper’s expert onboard naturalist, you will be on the lookout for these huge special whales as they migrate north. A unique, limited time opportunity!

About Gray Whales

Gray whales can reach nearly 50 feet in length and are known to live up to 70 years! They are baleen whales that migrate between feeding and breeding grounds each year. Gray whales have a slate-gray color with unique white spotted patterns as well as two blowholes on top of their head.

The annual gray whale migration from the Baja Peninsula to the Bering Sea is a challenging, 10,000 mile journey for these great creatures. The area around Seattle and Langley on Whidbey Island is popular with the 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.

Journey from downtown Seattle on the San Juan Clipper high-speed catamaran into the shimmering waters of the Puget Sound to see majestic gray whales. Learn about these 35 ton mammals from your expert onboard naturalist who educates throughout the tour and helps spot sealife. The perfect spring adventure to get out on the Salish Sea with family and friends!

Schedule:

11:00 AM: Departure at Pier 69 downtown Seattle
2:00 PM*: Arrive back at Pier 69 downtown Seattle

*Please note that we anticipate your gray whale watching tour to be around 3 hours depending on where the whales happen to be feeding on those dates. Times are approximate.
