Travel to where the Cascade and Olympic Mountains meet the sea, forming the stunning Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands archipelago. Cruise the clear blue waters to picturesque historic seaside towns such as La Conner where you can partake in a traditional smoked salmon tasting. As you journey through the San Juan Islands you will witness abundant wildlife including whales, eagles, and seals. Enjoy the scenic beauty of the region on our customized shore excursions to Butchart Gardens with its flower-adorned archways and Olympic National Park where you’ll witness breathtaking vistas. Learn about the cultural influences of both the Norwegians and the Suquamish tribe from the American Cruise Line onboard historians and local expert guides. On your private balcony, you can sip fine wines from local vineyards, while keeping an eye out for “Spirit,” the Orca whale we adopted last year.
