Western Prince Whale & Wildlife tours features two fantastic options for the whale watching experience you will only get in the beautiful San Juan Islands. They offer two different tour options for you to choose from.

 Friday Harbor Seaplanes is proud to partner with Western Prince to offer a Whale Watching Flight Package Adventure that makes a day trip from Seattle easy. Why drive and take the ferry, which you cannot do in a day, and take a scenic seaplane flight. Our flight schedules connect easily with Western Prince.

 The Western Prince II, custom 46′ boat is a fast (cruising at up to 21 knots) USCG certified twin-engine vessel that was originally built as an ocean going charter boat. We limit guest counts to only 32, with seating for 41. It is large enough for safety and comfort, yet small enough for a more interactive trip with the crew, the wildlife and other guests.


Friday Harbor Seaplanes | Western Prince Whale & Wildlife Tours


The Western Explorer is a thrill, it is not just a thrill ride. Every trip is guided by an experienced Captain and Naturalist. Killer Whales (orcas) are usually the primary focus of our tours and you can expect to see them on the vast majority of our trips between mid May and mid October, and to a lesser degree in March, April and late October. Faster boats, flexible trip times, and our departure location help ensure that our sightings are as high as, or higher than, any company in the area. We will also search for Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Dall’s Porpoises, Harbor Seals, Bald Eagles, Steller Sea Lions, Harbor Porpoises, and many interesting Sea Birds. Occasionally, we are treated to the sight of Gray Whales and Pacific White-Sided Dolphins.If you are looking for a wind in your hair “expedition style” adventure with the opportunity to learn about the amazing whales and wildlife of the San Juan Islands, then the Western Explorer is for you.

The “Odyssey” is the most comfortable whale watching boat available in the San Juan Islands.  A classic motor yacht, the Odyssey has comfortable indoor lounge style seating and heated cabins to keep you warm, two restrooms, a snack bar, large windows for inside viewing and a small library with books and coloring for the kids. Outside, the “Odyssey” offers large, wrap around decks with comfortable, padded seating on two levels, along with outdoor speakers for hearing information from our naturalists, listening to the orcas on our hydrophones and for music during the trip. The “Odyssey” was built in 1941 as a naval air/sea search and rescue boat and then was converted into a charter craft in the mid 1980’s.
Our team consists of fun and enthusiastic marine naturalists who are certified by the Whale Museum’s Naturalist Training Program and come from a variety of backgrounds from teachers to college students.  Our naturalists are also members of the Salish Sea Association of Marine Naturalists, so they are always up to date on all of the information about the area and it’s wildlife. Some of our naturalists are previous guests who were so inspired by their whale watching trip that they became certified naturalists themselves!
