Highlights near Friday Harbor

Wilderness Kayaking and Orca Whales

For a day or a week, paddle in the brisk clear waters of the San Juan Islands and get close with Orca (killer) whales, porpoise, seals, marine birds...relaxing sunsets and intimate campgrounds. Ferry from Anacortes to Friday Harbor, then paddling from San Juan County Park or Roche Harbor to James Island - one of my favorite weekend adventures.

Yes. Only May-Sept. But bottom line is: The longer you stay in the islands, the higher your chances are of seeing them. Of course, if you opt to go out on a motor boat, sightings are *almost* guaranteed. Kayaking is just a much MUCH better way of having this particular wildlife experience. Have fun!


Aw I was thinking of going this Spring break in March. Maybe Id better hold it off. Sounds enchanting!
