Whale Watching 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. Each day we look for Orca whales, bald eagles, seals, porpoises, sea lions, 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. It's like going on safari in the San Juan Islands!
Around noon we serve our delicious, complimentary Northwest salmon and BBQ chicken lunch, with a variety of side dishes and dessert. Yes, the delicious, freshly prepared wild salmon that our passengers have raved about for years is back!
Next is our shore visit in Friday Harbor, with 2 hours to wander around this vibrant seaside town, filled with interesting shops, artist galleries, pubs, 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!
