With more than 225 species of birds noted on the Quimper Peninsula - located on the Pacific Flyway at the convergence of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound - it's no wonder that this location provides a strategic launching point for birding discoveries, especially seabirds. Take daily ornithologist-led field trips to an array of out-of-the-way seaside habitats, protected areas, where migrant and resident marine, shore and upland songbirds are abundant. Enjoy a special chartered boat viewing of Protection Island and other featured sighting opportunities aboard ferry to spectacular Whidbey Island. Round out your stay with a visit to the Northwest Wooden Boat Maritime Center, and an exploration of this quaint Victorian Seaport.
