Event date

In addition to our flexible-scheduled year-round private day tours, we offer very small group hiking and nature tour packages that are 8 days and 7 nights.

We'll visit the highlights of a vacation to Olympic National Park while focusing on a shared passion for birds. 
We've planned all the details, so please join us. Email us today at and we will send you an expression of interest form.
Each tour will have no more than five participants who will be prioritized by the date an expression of interest form is received. 

We will have a chance at hearing and ideally viewing up to 132 species of birds at this time of year. Northwest bird species that we will seek out include Tufted Puffin, Marbled Murrelet, Heermann’s Gull, Short-billed Gull, Black Oystercatcher, Western Sandpiper, Sooty Grouse, Band-tailed Pigeon, Rufous Hummingbird, Black Swift, Violet-Green Swallow, Red-breasted Sapsucker, Hammond’s Flycatcher, American Dipper, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Pacific Wren, Black-throated Gray Warbler, and many more. Mountain wildflowers will be at their peak bloom. We will learn about the Makah people and experience why their home in Neah Bay encompasses some of the best birding in the state of Washington.
