Maya's Legacy Whale Watching Friday Harbor
We had an amazing whale watching tour - our boat captain and guide were very knowledgeable, and we found humpbacks and orcas, as well as other wildlife including bald eagles, seals, and sea lions.
This is the best whale watching company I've ever gone out with! I've been whale watching on lots of boats but these boats from Maya's Legacy are so fast comfortable and spacious plus you get to stay inside where...

Our guide Nico ( A marine biologist )and our captain were enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about their subject .There are three rules for whale watching we were told.
I was visiting Friday Harbor for a conference and while walking around town on an afternoon off I stumble upon Captain Ken (#spiritoforca on instagram) who was about to do his last whale watching trip of the day.
All Aboard Sailing Friday Harbor
Whale watching from a sailboat is a bit more relaxed and the small setting allowed Barbara and David to share their decades of knowledge about whales to us.

The captains are also very knowledgeable and are always in contact with other boats ferries and seaplanes to find the whales and give you the best whale watching that they can.
The Captain made all the right moves and sure enough found us (and all of the other whale watch boats in the San Juan Islands) a beautiful pod of Transient Orca Whales.

Outer Island Excursions Anacortes
We had an incredible whale watching trip where we had the fortune of seeing two Humpbacks diving around the boat, a pod of porpoises riding our wake and hanging out with a transient pod of Orcas.
They were very helpful and accommodating, the crew was fun and knowledgeable, and we had a great afternoon hanging out and whale watching with them.

We go whale watching every year in San Diego and this trip was head and shoulders above seeing the grey whales migrate south.
We were able to see Orcas on the way to Friday Harbor and minke whales and dolphins on the way back to Port Townsend.

We kayaked through stunning landscapes and camped on beautiful sites ️ And even if we didn’t see any orcas, we’ve had the chance to spot humpback whales, dolphins and seals along the way So thank you SQ and...
Our guide Maggie really made the trip, impressing me with her competence, enthusiasm and knowledge about the ocean currents, the wildlife that we saw (sea stars, bald eagles etc) and whale watching etiquette.

All the whale watching tours, fishermen, whale watcher association, etc communicate on location of whales throughout the trip so your captain knows where to take you for the best viewing opportunity.

This morning we were greeted by three very professional crew members of the Island Adventures Whale watching and enjoyed seeing several grey whales, sea lions ,and American Bald Eagels.
This boat beat the heck out of a smaller, inflatable whale watching trip we took from Depoe Bay OR several years ago (I was wet and chilled to the bone on that one -- also rainy -- and we saw almost nothing.)
Pacific Catalyst Friday Harbor
We had spectacular hikes, a terrific afternoon at a salmon hatchery with some pretty hair-raising bear watching, serene kayaking, and the best whale-watching experiences of our lives.
