Whale watching in the San Juan Islands is an experience you will not forget for the rest of your life. Whales, dolphins–including orcas–and other marine wildlife are some of the amazing creatures you may be lucky enough to witness while at sea. In fact, many people are so consumed by their first-ever whale sighting they break out in tears.
While this experience is truly thrilling and one-of-a-kind, one should act responsibly. So remember the do’s and don’ts of proper whale watching.
Do Some Research
Before heading out to sea, research the species you most likely will see in the region, according to the season. Whales migrate. To avoid waiting for nothing, make sure it is the migration season when you set out. Summer and Fall is the time for whale watching in the San Juan Islands.
