Welcome to Salish Sea Tour and Adventures on Orcas Island. We are the premier tour operator on Orcas Island and created with one goal in mind - to offer you a unique and completely unforgettable island experience.

Raised on the island we know it intimately. Where to go, what to see and how to get there. We pride ourselves in opening windows and doors to better help you understand its beauty and how it works. With relationships since birth and a network of partners there is nobody else on the island who can offer these types of access.

We make it easy. We can pick you up and drop you off at the ferry dock, your hotel or your vacation rental. Coming in on a plane from Seattle or boat from a sister island? We can pick you up at the marina or airport in the morning and drop you back off before dinner.


Below are examples of experiences that we offer.

From eating oysters, to sipping local beer, wine and ciders, we’ll make sure you have the inside scoop on how the food and drink gets from farm to the table. Great for those who eat and drink with reckless abandon. We normally start after lunch and finish in time for happy hour. *This tour is offered as both a private option or with a larger group.

Visit some of our favorites farms and farmers on the island and get up close and personal with their animals and gardens. Finish with a picnic lunch.
