Take the evening 2 1/2 hour tour. Wait for a clear day. Views are spectacular of both the pass and surrounding areas. This tour is inexpensive and great for both couples and families. Definitely would reserve a day ahead.

We booked the whole boat for part of our reunion and had a fantastic time. We saw eagles nesting. A great time was had by all on this one hour tour under the Deception Pass Bridge, and we would do it again!

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
