Whatcom history boat tours depart Thursdays during summer


Whatcom Museum-sponsored history cruises aboard the 110-foot tour boat Island Caper take place every Thursday, July 10 through Aug. 21, rain or shine.

The tours board at 5:30 p.m., depart promptly at 6 from Squalicum Harbor and return about 8:30 at Island Mariner Cruises, 2621 South Harbor Loop Drive, off of Roeder Avenue.

The tours take a close-up view of parks, businesses, industry and neighborhoods from Bellingham Bay, with onboard commentary by historian Brian Griffin. Picnic dinners are welcome but alcohol is not; beer and wine are sold onboard. The Island Caper has inside seating for more than 100 passengers, plus a covered upper-deck viewing area.

Tickets are $30 for museum members, $35 general, and $28 for groups of eight or more. Tickets can be purchased at the museum store at Whatcom Museum's Lightcatcher, 250 Flora St., through Brown Paper Tickets and at 800-838-3006.
