- THINGS TO DO
Are you ready to experience the Orca whales like you never have before? It is incredible to witness these creatures in their natural habitat, swimming freely, and cavorting about in their family groups. Even veteran whale watchers find themselves coming back again and again to learn more about them. Whether you’re visiting the Skagit Valley or you are lucky enough to live here, don’t let the opportunity to see these magnificent marine mammals pass you by!
One of the best opportunities to see wild orcas is right here from Skagit Valley, February through November. Whale Watching tours depart from Anacortes and La Conner. The Salish Sea is home to one of the most precious varieties of marine life on the planet! In addition to Orcas, Humpback whales, Minke whales, and Gray whales are also frequently seen throughout the year.
