This was most informative and fun Whale watching trip we have ever been on. We saw so many Orcas and variety of sea life, I am still smiling. Our Captain Gabe was great. I highly recommend this trip to all. Thank you, Lynn and Donna
The waters surrounding San Juan Island are full of salmon, the primary food source of orca whales, making it an ideal location for whale watching. With this tour, set out on a boat equipped with a heated cabin and large viewing windows to look for killer whales in their natural habitat. San Juan Island is rich in wildlife, and minke, humpback, and gray whales can also often be seen in the area.
Meet at Friday Harbor in San Juan Island at your selected time and board the boat for your whale-watching cruise. Climb aboard and choose a seat in the heated cabin with large viewing windows or head outside for a spot on the walk-around deck.
As you cruise, be on the lookout for whales and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Stop in prime locations and observe the species up close. Your seasoned captain is on hand to teach you about the ecology and geology of the waters in the region.
While it’s not guaranteed that killer whales will be seen on this tour, they are spotted more than 90 percent of the time. Minke, humpback, and gray whales are also often spotted in this area.
The tour ends at Friday Harbor where it began.
