Friday Harbor Day Trip with Expeditions NW!!
June 29, 2013
Our first Friday Harbor day trip of the season! Friday Harbor is one of our most scenic cruises as we sail between San Juan and Lopez Islands. Three resident orca pods reside in these waters, as does a wide variety of other marine wildlife which is viewed quite often. Friday Harbor is a quaint and unique sea town with a magical draw that seems to pull you into its relaxed "Island time" feel as you visit its wonderful shops, restaurant and museums. Want to kayak or explore the whole Island?? No problem, just let us know, we can arrange almost anything!

Unleashing the Elwha ~ Wild & Free
September 15, 2013
This is an adventure no one should miss! Following our 2011 trip to the mouth of the Elwha River (which coincided with the largest dam removal and river restoration project in U.S. history), we received a number of requests to revisit the shoreline up to the mouth of the river to explore changes occurring as the river renews itself. The speed with which the project progressed once demolition actually began and the impressive way the river is re-establishing itself will amaze you! Our crew will provide you with background on the project as you cruise to the river mouth.
