April 2019 Sponsor - San Juan Cruises

    This program has been generously sponsored by San Juan Cruises.  

    San Juan Cruises is a locally owned and operated company based in Bellingham, WA that operates four deluxe tour vessels: Victoria Star, Chinook, Salish Express and Salish Sea. We started back in 1987 as Gray Line Cruises, operating from the Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA. In 1989 the company moved to the Alaska Ferry Terminal, located in the historic Fairhaven District in Bellingham. For many years we operated boats between Bellingham, the San Juan Islands and Victoria, BC.

    In 2011 we ended our service to Victoria to allow us to focus more on whale watching tours in the scenic San Juan Islands, our popular Chuckanut Bay Cracked Crab dinner cruises, and private charters. In recent years we’ve added an annual series of fun beer and wine tasting cruises, tours to Sucia and Vendovi Islands, La Conner/Deception Pass cruises and bird watching cruises. With four vessels that can accommodate groups as small as 20 people, or as many as 149 people, we are the go-to company for scheduled tours, private cruises and group functions on the water. We strive every day to bring the best of Bellingham and the San Juan Islands to folks visiting from out of the area, as well as locals looking for a fun time out on the water.
