A Whale
Of a Time

Considered one of the best day trips in the Pacific Northwest, fly to the charming seaside village of Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor on San Juan Island. Enjoy the many shops and restaurants there before boarding a whale watch or kayak tour. Then fly home in the afternoon. We partnered with San Juan Safaris to bring you this amazing adventure.
