TAKE IT ALL IN

It's called the Great Northwest for a reason. Many reasons, in fact. Here in Northern Washington, the beauty and charm of the scenery is unequaled, and the history and culture of this region is truly fascinating. And, our majestic hills are legendary. Local attractions span from watching wildlife — onshore and offshore — to riding our iconic ferries, to taking an inspiring scenic drive. Those are just a handful of options at family resorts in Washington State.

Below are a few of our recommendations. Feel free to talk to the Front Desk about any type of local activity you'd like to explore.

BIRDWATCHING

The region's tide pools, estuaries, and waterways attract thousands of bird species each year — ideal for avid birdwatchers to check a few off their list, and exciting for the casual bird lover to see some impressive species. You can hike, bike, or walk among 300 natural acres. Seek out bald eagles, blue herons, and a plethora of other birds on a self-guided birdwatching tour, or follow along with our expert every Saturday at 2:00 p.m.


OUTER ISLAND EXCURSIONS

Whale watching tours are available September through April, and the marine life that'll cross your path includes orcas, humpbacks, minke whales, gray whales, as well as porpoise, sea lions, seals, eagles, and otters. And if just watching isn't your thing, book a private charter and get out there and fish!


ALASKA PACKERS MUSEUM

The fish cannery industry played an integral role in the development of the Semiahmoo region. Stop by the Drayton Harbor Maritime Museum — located just one mile from the resort and a convenient stop off the beach shore path — and view exhibits that go all the way back to 1894 covering the history of the Alaska Packers Association. The museum is open Friday — Sunday, 1:00-5:00 p.m. from Memorial Day through September.


HISTORIC PLOVER FERRY RIDES

When staying at Semiahmoo Resort, you're actually standing at the former site of Alaskan Salmon Cannery. The oldest passenger foot ferry in Washington State, the MV Plover was used to shuttle cannery workers here, and now you can climb aboard and access both sides of Drayton Harbor. Complete details with sailing times, routes, and fares can be found here. Runs every Friday — Sunday from Memorial Day through Labor Day.


MT. BAKER SKI AREA

When you're with us during the ski season, Mt. Baker is a must. Nestled in the heart of the Northern Cascades, spend a day barreling down powdery, groomed runs — it's classic Northwest skiing.


CHUCKANUT DRIVE

While it's fun to say "Chuckanut," this scenic route is also State Route 11, a 21-mile highway that winds through charming small towns in Whatcom and Skagit Counties.
