Visit the whales on your next getaway
Whidbey Island is the gateway to tranquil waterside towns, serene wineries, unique art galleries, superb dining, quaint coffee shops, and a whole lot more. But, did you know that Whidbey is also famous for spotting whales in their natural habitat? Every spring, some of the largest mammals in the world migrate to the waters of Whidbey to feast on the tasty shrimp and salmon to fuel up for the last leg of their annual migration north. Gray Whales, Orcas, and Minke Whales can also be spotted right here in the waters of the Puget Sound and can be seen from the shores of Whidbey Island in early spring.
Book your getaway this spring - hop on a boat tour or keep your eyes peeled from the shoreline, and experience the magnificence of these gentle giants. If you take the Mukilteo to Whidbey ferry on your way to the Island, be on the lookout as you may have the pleasure of seeing whales right from the ferry itself.
