When the tour finishes the boat pulls back into the slip in Friday Harbor where the tour began. You may then have time for a bit more shopping or a bit to eat. OR perhaps you will stay a night or two? Yes, we can arrange that also.
If you are going back to Seattle, then you have a short walk down a dock back to your seaplane. Check in is 15 minutes prior to departure. 40 minutes later you'll be back in Seattle.
