The Blackfish Express
Up to 30 passengers, not available for fishing
The Blackfish Express is the ultimate thrill ride as the fastest passenger boat in the San Juan Islands! Feel the rush of the fresh Pacific Northwest air on our only totally open deck boat. But don’t worry: we are happy to provide coats just in case. Complete with a wide wind break, full restroom, and plenty of cushioned seating. You would never guess it has top speeds over 50 mph because it has such a smooth, comfortable ride- until you watch as we fly by all the other boats! With the same twin outboard engines as the Blackfish II and the Blackfish III but half the weight, the Blackfish Expressis very fuel-efficient yet whisper-quiet when we slow down to an idle to watch wildlife. For the truly adventurous, the Blackfish Express is the ideal boat for getting where you want to go fast! This is the perfect vessel to make your private charter into the adventure of a lifetime.
We are excited about our fleet of new, high-speed, and fuel efficient vessels. The Blackfish fleet is the fastest in the region, with two new boats for 2015- the Blackfish III and the Blackfish Express. Our vessels are custom designed for charters, with something for everyone. You can have the ultimate thrill ride on the Express; enjoy the comfortable cabin on the rugged Triton; have an intimate experience with your small party of 6 or less on the Loki, the Blackmouth, or the Sun Runner; or take a large group on the Blackfish II or III with their top decks and heated cabins.
The Blackfish Fleet
The Blackfish II and Blackfish III
Up to 30 passengers, recommended for 15 fishermen
We loved the design of the Blackfish II so much we built another! The Blackfish II and III are custom designed with an incredible blend of comfort and thrill. These vessels have TWO decks and a fantastic view from the roof. With a top speed of 42 knots (that is almost 50 mph) the Blackfish fleet is easily twice as fast as the average charter boats and the fastest charter boats in the San Juans! You will find seating for everyone inside and out as well as a full restroom. Powered by the most fuel-efficient engines on the water in the San Juans, at an idle they are whisper-quiet to minimize impact on wildlife and environment.
