Overview of your Orcas tour:

Orcas Island~ "It is a wonderful place in which to forget one's troubles and worries and get back to Nature in her happiest moods. " Robert Moran Discover the secrets and stories of beautiful Orcas Island with your own private historian. Locals refer to Orcas Island as the gem of the San Juan Islands, and you will soon see why as we explore the majestic natural beauty surrounding us all the way from the highest mountain top in the county down to pristine beaches where Orcas Island meets the Salish Sea. I have lived on Orcas Island since 2002, and I have been a museum historian and tour guide specializing in the industry, history, and culture of the San Juan Islands and Pacific Northwest for over twenty years. I am looking forward to exploring Orcas Island with you as we take in amazing scenery, history, the charming village of Eastsound, and the stories of those who have called Orcas Island home throughout the centuries. Orcas Island has consistently been named a top travel destination in the world.
