Jet Boat Tour to Deception Pass

21 reviews
At peak current at over 8 knots (9.5 mph) almost 900 million gallons of water pour through Deception Pass. That’s 50 times more flow that all the rivers in the Puget Sound. You can see why there is a 4.5 foot height difference in the water level from one side of the pass to the other!<br><br>But don’t worry, the boat is equipped with latest safety equipment. Captain Brett and crew will ensure safe passage and an entertaining time for all!<br><br>The Island Whaler is a New Zealand designed jet drive catamaran. The catamaran style and foil assist ensures a soft and stable ride in any conditions. The open deck seating will give you the best 360° viewing opportunity and interaction with the surrounding elements.

I paid $ 5 & walked around with my dog. Relaxing. Was not rhododendron season but pleasant. Many plants were marked with descriptions. Someone put a lot of work into the place & I enjoyed it.

In the past, I have visited in the spring with all the rhododendrons in bloom, and the displays are spectacular. This visit was after that time, but it still well worth the time. There is a peaceful path, a nature walk with information about many interesting trees, plants, and occasional sculptures. A lovely, relaxing experience.

Lovely place for the whole family to visit. We stopped by in late May. The flowers were amazing. They have easy to walk paths and different levels of trails. Kids will enjoy the swing and the little secret garden with cute sculptures. The event area has a wonderful view. We will be back! Thanks to all the volunteers and staff who keep this place beautiful.

Spectacular when rhodies in bloom, but the greenery in itself is a treat even if it isn’t time for the flowering.

We went there twice now in May - what an inspiration to be there. You can just sit there and enjoy the garden, or walk around, visit the nursery, find the nature trail, the big leaf garden, or the secret garden. Werever you go there's beauty. Overgrown bushes, tall trees, the monkey tree, the young plants in the nursery, or visit the pond and enjoy the still beauty there and sit on the bench. Even saw someone just reading a book surrounded by the beautiful rhododendrons. Take your time, we even took a picnic lunch and sat at a table almost hidden surrounded by the blooming beauties. Pay $5 per person per entry, and these days they recommend wearing a mask.
