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.
