North America Pacific Northwest Cruise

Olympic Wilderness & San Juan Islands

Cruise round-trip from Seattle, Washington, on this magical 8-day Olympic Wilderness & San Juan Islands cruise. Experience local wildlife; explore coastal islands, Puget Sound and Olympic National Park; experience picturesque Shishole Bay or transit the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, and learn from Seattle’s picturesque waterfront.

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. Top it off with hand-crafted cuisine, including an oyster and clam tasting hosted by local growers.

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.
