Danger on Deception Island is the ninth game in the Nancy Drew adventure series. It is based on Nancy Drew Mystery Stories #153: Whispers In the Fog.


Plunge into danger to bring a mysterious island's secrets to the surface!

George's friend, Katie Firestone, has invited you, as Nancy Drew, to Deception Island in Washington for a whale-watching excursion. But when you arrive, you find Katie's tour boat has been heavily vandalized. A threatening note also warns Katie to 'stop meddling.' Apparently, Snake Horse Harbor is divided over an orphaned orca whale that recently appeared in the channel and has decided to stay. What was a simple vandalism case begins to unfold into something more mysterious and sinister. Can you find the culprit, or will you be too late to 'Save the Whales?'
