The San Juan Islands are home to abundant wildlife, from land to sea. Sea kayaking offers one of the best wildlife and whale watching platforms. We move quietly through the water, minimizing potential disturbance to the wildlife. Different variety of whales are known to travel through the islands. During the months of June through September the chance of encountering orca whales if high. During the early Spring and Fall humpback whales make their way into the island waterways. Harbor seals and sea lions are commonly seen on rocky outcrops and swimming the shoreline. Bald eagles nest in the islands during the Spring and are often spotted perched in top of trees. This is just an example of some of the wildlife we encounter kayaking the San Juan Islands.
Small islands strewn across the waterways with mountain peaks in the distance. Views of the Olympic Mountains and the Cascade Mountains sit in the distance. On clear day views of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker can be seen as well. The shoreline rocky outcrops are filled with fir trees and madrone tress. Everywhere you look you will see postcard perfect views
