San Juan Excursions

Whale watching Seattle and whale watching Washington are commonly associated with whale watching in the San Juan Islands.  San Juan Island is the center of whale watching in the Pacific Northwest and therefore Friday Harbor on San Juan Island is the best location for departing on a whale watch tour in Washington State.

Orca Whale watching in the San Juan Islands is such a fantastic experience that for me it is beyond description. Being on the water with these magnificent, intelligent, curious and beautiful animals is breathtaking. I have lived on San Juan Island for over 25 years and have had so many wonderful encounters with these lovely creatures that I consider myself very blest.

I am the only small boat whale watching tour departing from Friday Harbor. “Soulmate” my 25 foot C-Dory, only takes six guests at a time. I offer personal, intimate, whale watching at it’s best.
