Whale Watching from Friday Harbor

526 reviews
The waters surrounding San Juan Island are full of salmon, the primary food source of orca whales, making it an ideal location for whale watching. With this tour, set out on a boat equipped with a heated cabin and large viewing windows to look for killer whales in their natural habitat. San Juan Island is rich in wildlife, and minke, humpback, and gray whales can also often be seen in the area.

We took an overnight trip here and had no idea this place existed until we walked by. It worked out beautifully for us to drop off the 3 kids we were traveling with so the adults could enjoy the shopping. My sister-in-law has never left my niece (3yrs) at a drop-off before and only got a call an hour and a half in for minor homesickness. Kids were otherwise completely entertained, didn’t want to leave, and had a fantastic time! Great location because we weren’t far at all when we came back. Rates were extremely reasonable for this kind of experience. Kids play places generally run this rate with parents present — but as a drop-off!? Incredible. It was a no brainer. If we were staying longer, we’d take advantage of it every day. Caregivers were attentive, reasonable, and kind. Thanks for making our trip extra enjoyable!!

We stopped here for an hour on a really windy and cold day. There are tons of pretend play options and after an hour there were still several things we hadn't done. The staff was very welcoming and the establishment was very clean. Our kids are 2 and 8 and there was plenty to do for both ages.

Wow, what a delightful place for children. So much to do and see, everything is so thought through. Many different areas for kids to play, a full set up play kitchen, boat, chicken coop; someone has really put some thought and time into this place. nost importantly it was very clean, not a spot anywhere. Good job!!! A++++
