Just 90 miles north of Seattle, the best Whale Watching and Wildlife Tours from Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, Washington. We are an owner operated whale watching company with highly experienced captains and naturalist guides. Our focus is on high quality tours with small groups. Choose from the fast and comfortable 46′ Western Prince II (limited to 32 passengers or less, with seating for 41) or, for the more adventurous, the expedition style 40′ Western Explorer II (limited to 25 passengers or less).
The San Juan Islands are the best place in the world to see orca whales (killer whales) in the wild. But there is so much more to see and experience as well. We depart from the beautiful seaside town of Friday Harbor in search of an extremely diverse array of wildlife, while cruising through the spectacular beauty of the San Juan Islands Archipelago. Our departure point puts us in the heart of the Salish Sea, giving us prime opportunities to find not just Orca Whales but also Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Seals, Porpoises, Sea Lions and many different Sea Birds. We are so fortunate to have so much diversity just a short trip from Seattle, and we love sharing it with our guests.
