We always buy season tickets, so we can go at a moment's notice! Brett, the captain, is a great guy and a great guide. This is a 1 hour tour but they also have whale watching tours.

We live in Anacortes and thought the jet boat hour long tour would be a perfect way to get our out of state visitors out on the water on a gorgeous day. Austin did a great job getting us ready to go out to Coronet...More

We really enjoyed the 1 hour jet boat tour. It was fun to go under deception pass bridge and experience the crazy "boiling" water areas. Our guide told us interesting facts about the area. We saw seals with a pup swimming and sunning, porpoises, bald...More

$38 per person. You sign in at a small building in Deception Pass Park, then proceed to the dock. Great way to spend an hour on the water. Recommended.

While we have a cover for the boat, we typically will only use it about 1 time per year as the showers are normally short lived here in the rain shadow, and the cover restricts the viewing area. Once installed, it must be... More
