Gray whales near Everett in March and April

Gray whales spend March and April in the area around Everett and the Snohomish River and along the east side of Whidbey Island - Possession Sound, Saratoga Passage and Port Gardner Bay. The viewing is so good that the tour company that takes passengers from Anacortes to see orca/killer whales moves its boat to Everett for the gray whale season.

Like a secret roadside restaurant known only to the select few, the rich, muddy tidal flats between Everett and Whidbey Island have become a traditional spring stop for a very select group of hungry mammals.

About a dozen California gray whales, known as the Whidbey grays, make their way into this region seeking snacks of ghost shrimp, experts say.
Island Adventures is doing tours on weekends and two to three week days. The whales are so common that they guarantee you will see at least one or your next trip is free.
