Jet Boat Tour to Deception Pass

Jet Boat Tour to Deception Pass

star-5

At peak current at over 8 knots (9.5 mph) almost 900 million gallons of water pour through Deception Pass. That’s 50 times more flow that all the rivers in the Puget Sound. You can see why there is a 4.5 foot height difference in the water level from one side of the pass to the other! But don’t worry, the boat is equipped with latest safety equipment. Captain Brett and crew will ensure safe passage and an entertaining time for all! The Island Whaler is a New Zealand designed jet drive catamaran. The catamaran style and foil assist ensures a soft and stable ride in any conditions. The open deck seating will give you the best 360° viewing opportunity and interaction with the surrounding elements.

Kayaking in Deception Pass State Park

Kayaking in Deception Pass State Park

No experience is necessary to join this professionally guided kayak trip. Bowman Bay is the perfect place for beginners to feel comfortable paddling on the sea. It offers beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife to seek out. Although this trip is conducted in Deception Pass State Park we avoid the turbulent water near the bridge which is more suitable for expert kayakers. If you plan to visit Deception Pass State Park then don't miss this wonderful opportunity to see it from the unique perspective of a sea kayak!

Whale Watching from Friday Harbor
"The naturalist was great. Wonderful cruise. Highly recommended for anyone interested in San Juan Islands flora and fauna."..."

Jet Boat Tour to Deception Pass
"I’ve been on this tour numerous times over the years and each time is a plus! Always a different experience! The bridge work covers the beauty of the span but surrounding area makes the tour memorable. I especially appreciated having the captain stop our boat often to just ‘be’ and take in 360 degrees of Salish Sea! We enjoyed the information our tour guide provided!"..."

Kayaking in Deception Pass State Park
"We had a very good time on this tour. We had only been kayaking once or twice before and we were a little tired as we were trying to squeeze a lot into one day, but this was just the right amount of time, it's a short trip with beautiful scenery all around. We enjoyed our tour guide Nikki very much, she was pleasant and patient, and even though I would have thought we would have been the lest experienced she had quite a group of novice and handled us all very well. Nikki took pictures for us (as we were afraid to take a phone or camera out on the kayak) and sent them to us later, it was nice to have our time memorialized. Cheer! :)"..."
