Some people think it never stops raining in Seattle. That’s not true- that’s just the story we keep telling people to keep this place to ourselves. On the Puget Sound, you’ll see miles of trees and snow capped mountains. You’ll see reflective water that turns into clear sky. From long, low clouds that kiss the water’s surface when the temperature changes, to green trees as far as the eye can see, to fiery sunsets, and a bustling city, this place is truly one of a kind. A complex arrangement of natural waterways, inlets, bays, harbors, and canals, the Puget Sound region stretches from Seattle to Bellevue to the east, to Olympia in the South, and to Deception Pass and the San Juan Islands in the north.

The best way to experience this area is by water. And no one knows the water better than our fishermen. Our team spends more time on the water than on land, so who better to show you the most beautiful places? Keep an eye out for Orca, Gray, and Humpback whales, Harbor and Dall’s porpoises, Sea Lions, Ospreys, Bald Eagles, and many, more species of wildlife unique to the Pacific Northwest.

From skyscrapers to mountains, the Puget Sound gives visitors a stark contrast: You’ll see the wild, rugged, forests and mountains that define the Pacific Northwest, and the innovative city that’s the home to tech giants like Amazon and the hub of rapidly growing startups to boot. Our tours begin with close-up views of the Ballard Locks and the Seattle Waterfront where you’ll see Seattle landmarks including the Space Needle, the Seattle Great Wheel, Safeco Field and Centurylink Stadium (home to the Seattle Mariners and Seahawks). Then, you’ll turn north towards Bainbridge Island, and enjoy mountains, ocean, and wildlife as you head towards the San Juan Islands. We also offer custom tours where you can visit to the heart of Lake Union and Lake Washington to witness an insider’s view of the city and many luxurious lakefront properties in the area.

Seattle sightseeing tours are the perfect gift for the holidays, birthday celebrations, or a Pacific Northwest vacation. No matter the occasion, our team provides adventure and top quality service on our Puget Sound sightseeing and whale watching adventures all year round.

Words from a Customer

…Keith has been fishing for over 25 years and knows the Puget Sound like the back of his hand. A nice bonus was that we saw a humpback whale, porpoises, sea lions, and tons of birds. It was amazing.
