Whidbey Island & Deception Pass Tour
We begin with a drive to the North end of Whidbey Island where you’ll have the opportunity to walk across the Deception Pass Bridge. Many ships and vessels have been torn to shreds attempting to enter Puget Sound through this Passage. The tumultuous waterway below looked deceptively like a bay at first glance in 1792, and is why it got its name, compliments of Captain George Vancouver.
We make a stop at Washington’s favorite State Park if you want to touch the water, or walk in the sand and rocks and driftwood. Lunch is in historic Coupeville and Penn Cove. If you are a history enthusiast, we’ll take you to an historic military fort built in 1902 and to a lighthouse. No island trip is complete without a ferry, which we’ll need to get off the island!

Small Town Exploration
Towns are within 1 hour drive.
The Puget Sound Region has some very interesting small towns and is a great way to explore the region's history and heritage. A real inside look at the Pacific Northwest.
A rustic, Victorian lumber town from our early days, the old mill is still here and the tiny town is wonderful as a step back in time. This town re-enacts Civil War battles and hosts both Union and Confederate camps in June each year.
A harbor town on a river, this very quaint town is great to stroll and explore. The town boasts a wonderful heritage museum with an impressive Swinomish Indian Tribe collection and presence, and a quilt museum occupied in an historical Victorian home. This town is a favorite stop during the Tulip Festival in April.
Coupeville, Poulsbo, Bremerton, Snohomish Edmonds, and Port Townsend, are a few more worth exploring.
Call for more information.

Leavenworth Alpine Village Tour
Summer AND Winter fun.
A Bavarian wonderland, this former railroad town transformed itself into a beautiful mountainous Bavaria after the railroad moved.

Any time: winter, summer — with or without festivals — is a good time to see Leavenworth.
Scenery, good food, unusual shops and great people.

Pacific Ocean Beaches Tour
This tour is loaded with Northwest Adventure. The Long Beach area has cranberry bogs, and depending on the time of year, we'll stop and see harvesting. There is plenty of time on the beach at the Pacific Ocean, with driftwood and sand. Do some rock or shell searching, watch the boats as they maneuver the mouth of the mighty Columbia river, where many a ship has sunk at the massive river exit into the ocean. Learn history about the explorers Lewis and Clark, the military presence in the area, and the fishing industry.
The drive there is half the fun! Wilapa Bay is usually full of water one way, and mud flats the other, it’s so astonishing to see the same space so very differently. Raymond has a wonderful personality, you’ll enjoy all this tour has, and more.
A small town on the ocean, Long Beach has many good restaurants and fun shopping for tee-shirts, kites, and assorted beach type items. At the sand dunes separating the town from the beach, you'll find dune grass, 31 miles or so of sandy beach, driftwood, and a boardwalk. Find seashells and rocks as you wander along the shoreline, listening to the pounding surf of the Pacific Ocean.
Stop at the North Head Lighthouse and explore the trail to the cliff, see seagulls, maybe sea lions and/or harbor seals. Lunch is included at a restaurant you'll help pick, once we arrive in Long Beach.
Almost always a private tour, we may get another booking with another couple.
