Description

This Nancy Drew adventure takes place on an island in the Pacific Northwest where she goes to do some whale-watching. The mystery centers around an Orca whale that has appeared in the channel. Everyone in the town of Snake Horse Harbor has a different opinion about what should be done about the whale, including the person who invited you there, Katie Firestone. Evidently Katie has ruffled someone's feathers because her tour boat is vandalized and she received a threatening note to "stop meddling." Something sinister is certainly going on here, and Nancy begins to investigate.

You play Nancy Drew as she explores the island on foot, bicycle or in a kayak. Hit the beach and build a sandcastle or search the lighthouse. Visit the Whale Center and the Hot Kettle Cafe.

Like other games in the series, this is a point-and-click game that involves talking to several characters and solving puzzles to unravel the mystery.

Trivia

Up until this game, the Nancy Drew CDs came packaged in a hard plastic jewel case inside the box. Her Interactive shipped Deception Island's CD in a cheaper paper sleeve.

Also in previous Nancy Drew games, a good manual was included explaining gameplay and sometimes full credits were listed. In this game, however, you receive only a paper fold-out with installation instructions and a product catalog.
