: Whale Watching

The San Juan Islands provide one of the best whale watching opportunities anywhere in the world, offering protected waters and a huge variety of wildlife, which include our three pods of resident Orca whales. Anacortes is known as the “Home Port” to the San Juan Islands and is the perfect departure point for guaranteed whale watching and wildlife cruises. Situated in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands provide calm waters (sea-sickness is very rare!), sunny skies, and an incredible backdrop for your whale watch adventures. Only 80 miles north of Seattle, we are connected to the Washington mainland by bridges so visitors can drive directly to us for hassle free wildlife viewing.

If you are visiting the northwest or are lucky enough to live here, don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
