Living the Dream travels to many beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest. Such destinations include but are not limited to:
Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge
Our most popular cruise for wildlife viewing. Seabirds, bald eagles, harbor seals, harbor porpoises, elephant seals and more can be seen. Approximately 70 percent of the nesting seabirds from this area breed and nest on the island. It also claims one of the largest nesting colonies of rhinoceros auklets in the world and the largest nesting colony of glaucous-winged gulls in Washington. The island contains one of the last 2 nesting colonies of tufted puffins in the Puget Sound area. About 1,000 harbor seals depend upon the island for a pupping and rest area. Cost is $195 for up to six passengers and takes about 2 hours.
Light House Cruises
There are several lighthouses in our area including New Dungeness, Pt. Wilson, Ft. Casey, Marrowstone Island and more. We cruise by these stations and give you an historical tour of each. This is a 3-4 hour cruise and prices start at $295.
We now offer trips to the New Dungeness Lighthouse and land you on shore so you can visit the Lighthouse for a guided tour and, if you so choose, take a picnic lunch to have on the grounds.
San Juan Islands
The Pacific Northwest has an inviting secret spot known as the San Juan Islands. The 247 days of sunshine and half the rain of Seattle, Washington make the San Juan Islands the perfect year-round getaway! San Juan County, with more than 375 miles of rocky and sandy waterfront, boasts more shoreline than any other county in the nation. These islands have been luring explorers and visitors with a natural beauty full of surprises since they were first discovered. A wonderful proliferation of wildlife can be seen during this trip. Many sea birds, seals, porpoises, Stellar Sea Lions and Orcas are in this area along the way. We can also include Minor Island along the way which boasts the only bald eagle nest which has been built on the ground. This cruise is a full day trip and costs $695 with a lunch stop at either Fisherman's Bay, Lopez Island or Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. Again, this is for up to six passengers.
