All Aboard To See The Tulips
Our Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Day Cruise begins and ends in Port Angeles on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. Passengers will sail east across the Salish Sea to Whidbey Island, travel through Deception Pass, and dock at the waterfront community of La Conner. A Deluxe Coach will transport passengers to two tulip fields – Tulip Town and RoozenGaarde Tulip Field – where there will be ample time to tiptoe through the tulips and snap photographs.
Tip Toe Through Two Tulip Fields
RoozenGaarde Tulip Fields features more than 1,000 acres of flower fields and an authentic Dutch Windmill. Some of the nearly 100 tulip varieties date back to the early 1700′s. Painter John Ebner, who designed the 2011 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival poster will be at RoozenGaarde on April 16 to sign his artwork.
Tulip Town will display 19 new varieties of tulips this year in their display gardens. Their new Indoor Show will feature “massive tulip bouquets” and a large mural of the Skagit Valley and Holland, where Tulip Town owner Tom DeGoede was raised.

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Day Cruise passengers will have time to explore La Conner before heading back to Port Angeles. Explore art galleries, shops and museums. Have lunch in a waterfront cafe. Take the self-guided Sculpture Tour through town. Have a great time and celebrate Spring!
