Description

San Juan Island is one of the world's best places to view Orca whales in the wild. Naturalists point out fascinating wildlife while cruising along the rugged coastline.

Board the 55-foot (17-m) vessel, the Sea Lion, where there’s plenty of room to roam the boat and marvel at the wildlife. Known for providing high quality tours with small groups, a hand-picked team of naturalists with a love and dedication to wildlife as well as a scientific understanding guides you through your tour. Harbor seals, bald eagles, blue heron, and numerous other types of wildlife are seen on almost every tour.

Orca whales return every year to the San Juan Islands where they feed on the salmon. Enjoy the thrill of seeing one of the most impressive animals on the planet while they eat and play in their natural habitat. Before returning to the harbor, your guide will drop a hydrophone into the water so you have a chance to hear the song of the whales.

Alexandria was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. Unfortunately we did not get to see whales. We saw Garbor porpoises, Bald Eagles, Sea Lions, Deers on Spieden Island and more beautiful natural landscapes.

The crew, in particular Alexandria and Sarah, worked very hard to give everyone a great experience, and it was!

Even though it's a shot in the dark to always see whales , orcas and other larger mammals this was a unforgettable tour we saw bald eagles, seal lions and seals. And a transient pod of young orcas being trained by their mother to hunt it was so great and our naturalist was super excited with explaining what was happening!!
