In the morning, guests will be picked up from the specified departure location in Seattle to begin this tour. Today, we will enjoy a relaxing day trip whale-watching around San Juan Island. The cruise leaves directly from downtown Seattle, allowing us to skip the traffic and get right out on the water. With the guidance of a trained naturalist onboard, we will be on the lookout for orca, minke, and humpback whales, as well as Dall's porpoises, seals, otters, bald eagles, and much more! Afterwards, we will stopover in Friday Harbor for the chance to grab a bite to eat or explore on our own. When we return to the departure location in downtown Seattle, the tour will come to an end. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off time and locations.
