American Cruise Lines

Explore picturesque historic seaside towns and view breathtaking natural landscapes along the Puget Sound.

Travel to where the Cascade and Olympic Mountains meet the sea, forming the stunning Puget Sound and 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, 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 will witness breathtaking vistas. Learn about the cultural influences of both the Norwegians and the Suquamish tribe from the American Cruise Lines 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," an Orca whale American Cruise Lines adopted during our first season on the Puget Sound.

Traveling with American Cruise Lines is a wonderful experience with a crew of such caring, kind, and friendly people consistently working to give you an enjoyable trip.

Please call 1-888-815-5428 for additional details and availability.

Day 1 - Seattle, WA

Arrive early in Seattle and spend the day exploring local attractions like the Space Needle and Pike Place Market. In the afternoon, your cruise on Puget Sound begins as we set sail across the clear blue water.

Day 2 - Anacortes, WA

Anacortes is home to Deception Pass, one of the most photographed places in the Northwest. View the pass from the water, or explore on easy walking trails along the shoreline. There will be plenty of time to visit the town, just a few steps from our dock. After dinner, the Fidalgo Swing Band will join us for an evening of swing in the main lounge.

Day 3 - Cruising the San Juan Islands

Your cruise is as much about the journey as it is about each destination. Today is a day to revel in the scenery, as we make our way through the San Juan Islands. Witness the whales, eagles, and seals that adorn the backdrop of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. As we cruise, listen to our onboard expert describe the native wildlife or simply sit back and enjoy the sun on the top deck.

Day 4 - Friday Harbor, WA

Friday Harbor is a beautiful, walkable seaport with small shops and turn-of-the-century buildings. Experience island life as it was over a century ago by visiting the San Juan Historical Museum. At the Whale Museum, learn about Spirit, the orca whale American Cruise Lines adopted during our first season on the Puget Sound.

Day 5 - Victoria, BC / Port Angeles, WA

The only Canadian town on our cruise, Victoria is a wonderful place to spend a day on a guided tour through the magnificent Butchart Gardens and lively waterfront. Start the tour from our berth in Port Angeles, continuing to Hurricane Ridge with vast views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the mountainous wilderness of Olympic National Forest.

Day 6 - Port Townsend, WA

Port Townsend is a charming town with a fascinating past. Beautifully restored Victorian architecture is now home to small museums, galleries, and shops. In the evening, members of the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra will be aboard for a night of magnificent classical music.

Day 7 - Poulsbo, WA

Poulsbo is a great place to visit for its history, scenery, and lively downtown. Originally a logging camp settled by Norwegians who likened the landscape to the fjords of their homeland, Poulsbo retains a Scandinavian influence. A distinct Native American influence is present in nearby Suquamish, located on the Port Madison Indian Reservation, where a museum is dedicated to the history and culture of this native tribe.

Day 8 - Seattle, WA

Welcome back to Seattle. Relax on the sun deck as the famous skyline of the city draws near. Once we arrive, make the most of you time in Seattle with a tour, or allow American Cruise Lines to assist with transportation arrangements home.
