Friday Harbor/San Juan Island Day Cruises
The Perfect Day Trip!
Rated #2 on New York Times List: 41 Places to Go in 2011 and designated as a National Monument in 2013 by Presidential Proclamation, you won’t want to miss this national treasure.
The National Monument designation covers approximately 1,000 acres in the San Juan Islands, spread over 75 different sites aimed at permanently protecting already-managed federal Bureau of Land Management lands such as recreational areas enjoyed by locals and visitors, cultural sites used by local tribes for thousands of years, historic lighthouses, shrinking habitat and much more.
Vacation in your own back yard…..
The journey to Friday Harbor is breathtakingly scenic, and there is always the chance to see some of our “locals” – Orca who frequent the area between Port Angeles and the waters around San Juan Island. Other marine mammals in the area include the River Otter, Steller Sea Lions, the Minke Whale or maybe even a Humpback, and Dall’s Porpoise – all that and a great variety of sea birds as well!
Once ashore, you’ll have time for exploring museums, galleries, shops, or to get a bite to eat…. Or, join some of your fellow travelers on a popular van tour if island highlights.
Experience ‘island time’ and explore the Whale Museum.
The Whale Museum in Friday Harbor has been promoting stewardship of whales and the Salish Sea ecosystem for 30 years…be sure to check it out during your visit.
Advanced reservations highly recommended.
