Fishing & Whale Watching

Outer Island Excursions

Option 1: Fishing Trip

Outer Island Excursions offers salmon and bottom fishing charters directly from Semiahmoo Resort throughout the San Juan Islands. You will fish for Salmon, Ling Cod, Rock Fish, Halibut, Cabazon, Flounder, Greenling and many other species. Dungeness and Red Rock Crab are also in the plans! Our captains want to ensure your fishing trip is memorable and do everything possible for the "big catch." It's even possible during this trip to see a few whales too!

Option 2: Whale Watching

Outer Island Excursions has the highest orca whale sighting ratings in the San Juan islands throughout the spring and summer and take great pride in finding whales when others can't! OIE travels into the Gulf Islands of Canadian waters as well as throughout the San Juans on vessels custom designed for orca whale watching. Each trip is unique and you'll be escorted by the most knowledgable team to provide you with a better understanding of the marine ecosystem while enjoying an authentic wildlife experience.
