The Best Cruising Adventure In The San Juan Islands
Welcome aboard! Enjoy the sights and sounds of the incredible marine wildlife that live in the scenic San Juan Islands on our Whale Watching Adventure cruise. Join us as we look for Orca whales, bald eagles, seals, porpoises, sea lions, Humpback whales, Minke whales and more, as the captain tells you about the history, wildlife and geology of the area. We are part of a local whale spotting network, which helps us find whales and other local wildlife on each and every trip.
Around noon we serve our delicious, complimentary Northwest King salmon and BBQ chicken lunch, with a variety of side dishes and dessert. Our freshly prepared wild salmon, caught locally in Puget Sound, has earned rave reviews for years. You won't find a more scenic lunch spot in the San Juan Islands than aboard the Victoria Star 2.
Next is our shore visit in Friday Harbor, with 2 hours to wander around this vibrant seaside town, filled with interesting shops, artist galleries, brewpubs, and the largest whale museum in the Northwest. Afterward we'll cruise back to Bellingham, while soaking in the early evening sun. No other cruise in the Northwest offers so much!
