Mystic Sea Charters ‘passes torch’

After almost 30 years of service out of Anacortes, Mystic Sea Charters owners Monte and Cindy Hughes have announced they are ‘passing the torch’ to a whale watching tour company out of Langley. In a February 20 Facebook post the Hughes wrote: “Dear Friends, Family, Crew, Colleagues and Guests – Thank you for 28 fun-filled years aboard the Mystic Sea! Since 1990, Mystic Sea Charters has had the honor of hosting your tours in the San Juan Islands with whale watching and wildlife cruises, weddings, rehearsal dinners, memorials at sea, birthday parties, holiday parties, corporate events, Deception Pass tours, dive charters, research trips, trips to B.C., Butchart Gardens, Alaskan glacier cruises and so much more. We have done it all, big and small. Every tour has been an incredible, memorable adventure. Our journey with the Mystic Sea has been an extraordinary one, and we are forever grateful for your support throughout the last 28 years. We truly appreciate each and every one of you.
The time has come to pass the torch to a new whale watching tour company. Starting today, we are passing the torch to Puget Sound Express, a longstanding, family-run tour operation in Northwest Washington. They have four beautiful boats in their fleet, several prime water locations and many quality tours under their hull. They will take our spot in Langley, Washington and begin operating gray whale tours on Friday, March 8 as scheduled. They will offer gray whale tours aboard the majestic, 65 foot M/V Glacier Spirit out of Langley, Washington. Visit their website, www.pugetsoundexpress.com to book your tour today. Thank you so much for your loyalty and business. We wish you 28 more fun-filled years with Puget Sound Express! All our best, Monte and Cindy Hughes”

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
