Friday Harbor and San Juan Island are considered by many, one of the best places on earth to view pods of Orca whales, which scour the area for wild salmon. With limited seasonal viewing opportunities, the summer months are ideal for whale watching. And what better venue for spotting whales and viewing the majestic peaks of the Olympic Mountains than in the comfort of the newest 55 foot San Juan Safaris boat: the SEA LION. On each and every journey of the SEA LION, a modern, comfortable ship, there are highly trained, professional naturalists on board that help passengers spot whales and provide commentary of the surrounding area.

And while on the tour, be sure to take plenty of pictures! Who knows? One of them might be good enough to win a prize in San Juan Safari's annual photo contest. With four categories: 1) whales 2) wildlife 3) people watching whales 4) San Juan Safari boats. It is a good bet that one of those pictures might be worth submitting.

Besides the informative excursions, San Juan Safaris is host to a newly expanded and renovated gift store. There is something exciting in store for everyone - Mom might like the beautiful necklace, bracelets and earrings, while dad will enjoy browsing our vast selection of whale books, posters and key chains. There are tee shirts that change colors and cuddly 4-foot long whale and octopus plush creatures for the kids. For those who think Christmas year round, there are ten new collectible Christmas ornaments. For a great souvenir; there are greeting cards, post cards, magnets, and last, but certainly not least, fun Orca hats.
