BIRDS AND WILDLIFE GALORE!

The San Juan Islands are a premier birdwatching destination. In addition to waterfowl and game birds, the Islands are home to loons, cormorants, wading birds like the Great Blue Heron, vultures, eagles, hawks, gulls, terns, alcids, owls, and countless shore birds.

The San Juan Islands are also home to resident pods of orcas – or “killer whales.” The marine ecosystem that supports the whales, also supports minke whales, humpbacks, seal lions, seals, otters, and many other marine mammals. As we tour the Islands, we’ll likely see many of these creatures from the boat.
