North America Pacific Northwest Cruise

San Juan Islands & Olympic Wilderness Cruise

Cruise round-trip from Seattle, Washington, on this magical 8-day San Juan Islands & Olympic Wilderness cruise. Experience local wildlife and picturesque Shishole Bay; explore coastal islands and Olympic National Park; and learn from Seattle’s picturesque waterfront. Hike among nature’s giants. Discover the secret places along Washington’s wild coastline. Kayak among rocky outcroppings, spotting sea life. Explore dramatic Deception Pass by skiff. And hike mossy island forests frequented by red fox, deer and woodpeckers.

An unhurried agenda paired with a diligent captain and crew encourages watching for whales, orcas, seals, sea lions, eagles and sea birds. Explore scenic winding channels, temperate rainforest and old-growth forest. Uncover native cultures of the Pacific Northwest. Hike in the Olympic Mountains, Mt. Constitution and Washington State Parks. Kayak, stand-up paddleboard and explore by skiff in glacial fjords and the San Juan archipelago.

One vessel operates this 8-day itinerary, the 22-guest Safari Quest, which provides a luxury and intimate experience voyaging along the coast. The Safari Quest is also an AdventureSmith favorite for private charter cruises due to her small size.
