Boasting spectacular seascapes and some fantastic marine life, the San Juan Islands off the coast of Seattle are best explored by boat or by kayak for a peaceful retreat from life in the bustling city. This full-day adventure takes in the highlights.
The San Juan archipelago boasts undeveloped islands and rugged scenery galore, a welcome contrast from the bright lights and buzz of Seattle's streets. Head to Friday Harbor with a naturalist guide to explore this stunning wilderness, keeping your eyes peeled for whales, birds and other marine life as you travel over on the morning ferry.
Highlights of this adventure include a 3-hour search for orcas by kayak led by a naturalist guide, a visit to a winery or sculpture park, exploring Lime Kiln State Park and tucking into a picnic lunch on a secluded beach, surrounded by breath-taking scenery.
