I’ve lived in Washington State for 29 years and I can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. I’ve traveled to several locations around the world and am yet to find a place as beautiful, lush, and diverse in its terrain and natural treasures. I believe the San Juan Islands are one of Washington’s most valued destinations. My family and I also believe that Outer Island Expeditions is the single greatest way to see this jewel of Puget Sound. I have ventured to the San Juan’s dozens of times but have never experienced it quite like this. Last June we attended our second adventure with Outer Island Expeditions and look forward to booking again next year for our third trip.
Our first trip was booked last summer with 2 other couples, my wife, and myself. All of us were staying on the islands as a summer getaway. Outer Island Expeditions came highly recommended by our good friends who live in Seattle, and by our hotel. Based on these recommendations, I had very high expectations. We had a great trip and my expectations were far exceeded. We were very fortunate to see whales, porpoise, seals, eagles, and hike the beautiful park trails. We finished our trip with a delicious Northwest style dinner with seafood and steak that our Captain prepared for us right on the island.
Our second trip was this summer on their new vessel. My brother was married at beautiful Roche Harbor resort on San Juan Island. My brother, his groomsman, and myself went on a fishing excursion before the wedding. All of us caught fish, including large Cod and had plenty of fish to barbeque throughout the weekend. Our Captain, Beau, was very educated on local fishing hot spots and we had an incredible time.
I wrote this review because my family believes that everyone visiting the San Juan’s should give one of these incredible excursions a try. Outer Island Expeditions is an experience not to be missed.
