San Juan Islands Whale Watching from Friday Harbor (Low Season)

Take a scenic cruise from Seattle to Friday Harbor, where you will embark on an exciting day of whale-watching and sea life exploration. Learn about the area's vibrant ecosystem from the on board naturalist and tour a charming island town. Explore Washington's natural beauty with a full day tour of the area's captivating wildlife.

Begin your journey in Seattle, where you'll board the ferry for a Puget Sound cruise. Admire the expansive views of unparalleled beauty on your way to San Juan Island. By mid-morning, you will arrive at the islands, where you will embark for the highlight of your day, a whale-watching cruise. Keep your eyes peeled for orca whales (also known as killer whales), as well as Dall's porpoises, seals, otters, and impressive birds such as bald eagles. Take advantage of the on board naturalist's extensive knowledge about the area's whales and other magnificent creatures. Following the whale-watching cruise, step off the boat and onto San Juan Island for some touring on your own.

With your complimentary guidebook in hand, you'll have about two hours to explore the quaint town of Friday Harbor. Tour the charming streets by foot or rent a bike. Visit the Whale Museum or the sculpture garden at Westcott Bay Reserve. Following your independent touring of Friday Harbor, return to the ferry that will bring you back to Seattle. This exciting day trip from Seattle offers the best views of Puget Sound and the chance to observe whales in their natural habitat. Climb aboard for a memorable day filled with epic sights.
