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 learned a TON about Whidbey Island / Oak Harbor history by visiting the museum. It is well laid-out with great artifacts, visuals, and thoughtful presentations. The film about the history of the area and the PBYs was especially good. Nice gift shop, too!

We enjoyed going through this museum. Even with a few experiences closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, the history and artifacts were well worth the visit. Thank you for your hospitality!

The PBY was very important in WWII for many reasons, including importantly scouting and pilot rescue. The museum does a nice job telling about life on Whidbey Island - including how people felt about "imminent domain" taking their farms, plus of course the plane, pilots, and the missions.
