What To Expect
Yonder Sky
Our day starts with front door pickup at your downtown Seattle hotel or vacation rental in our luxury Mercedes van. On the way to the island, we'll stop to enjoy coffee, tea, juice, and fresh baked pastries from our favorite Seattle bakery.
Deception Pass State Park
We’ll start our day at the island’s most stunning natural attraction and its only bridge to the mainland: Deception Pass. Strong tidal currents shape the dramatic landscape to this day. The beautiful vistas and beaches demonstrate why this is the most visited park in all of Washington State.
Coupeville is among the oldest communities in Washington and one of the centerpieces of Ebey’s Landing National Historic Reserve. Enjoy lunch, included in the tour price, at one of the areas best restaurants.
Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve
After lunch, we’ll head to the windswept cliffs of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve. Established in 1978, Ebey’s Landing was the first such historical reserve in the country.
Fort Casey State Park
Enjoy gorgeous coastal and tidal views as we wind our way to Fort Casey State Park. This former military installation was built during World War II as the third leg in a triangular fortification system protecting the entrance to Puget Sound. While here, take time to wander the abandoned bunkers, visit the beautiful historic lighthouse, and take in sweeping views of the Salish Sea.
We’ll round out our tour of Whidbey by visiting beautiful downtown Langley. Soak up the creative and small-town island vibe as your guide shows you around town. If you like, stop into the boutique shops and small art galleries lining the main street. One local favorite is the Firehouse Glass Studio, where you can observe artists at work as they manipulate molten glass with the help of a thousand-degree furnace.

The private group tour to Whidbey Island was excellent! Daniel was our guide, and the tour was exactly what we were looking for. The day was full of activity, and we hit all the places we wanted to see and a few more. Daniel was extremely flexible and tailored the tour to our group as we went along. The food was great (we had a picnic lunch (Covid)), and he made sure we had water, other drinks, and snacks throughout the day. A great day all around, and we'll make sure to use Yonder Sky again if we get the chance to do another tour in the future. Highly recommend!

The small group tour by Yonder Sky is the best way to visit Whidbey and Deception Pass – a relaxed, comfortable pace with personalized attention. This small group gives you the chance to interact with your fellow travelers and guide. The new Mercedes van is modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and courteous. He made sure that we got to see the beautiful coastal scenery, interesting sights and provided many photo opportunities. Daniel enthusiastically shared his knowledge of the history of the area, including much about the Native Americans who settled in this area and about the founding of some of Washington’s oldest communities. The walk through the woods to the beach at Deception Pass allowed us to get up close to Old Growth Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. We were treated to a nice lunch at a local restaurant in Coupeville, one of the oldest communities in Washington. After lunch we visited several other interesting and scenic sights including Fort Casey, a World War II military installation, built to protect Puget Sound. On our return journey to Seattle we took the Clinton Ferry to Mukilteo. Nice to experience the Washington State ferry system as it is such an integral part of life in this area for work and play. Thank you Daniel for such a memorable day and being a weather wizard that was able to change a very rainy forecast miraculously into a nice day.

Just one other couple was on this tour with my husband and I, Daniel was our driver and guide. We lucked out with no rain and we had a lovely day making numerous stops on Whidbey Island and at Deception Pass. We had a wonderful lunch in a place overlooking the water along the way, this is included with the tour. Daniel was such a pleasant person to spend the day with and a great guide. Recommend this if you want a nice relaxing day.

Hi Marilyn, thanks so much for joining me and taking the time to write a review. I had a great time spending the day with you on Whidbey Island. Is there anything we could have done better to make this a five-star experience? We're always open to constructive feedback to improve our tours. -Daniel and Matt, Owners and Guides
