When you stay with us at the San Juan Island Inn Collection, we want to ensure you make the most of your vacation to the San Juan Island! How do we do that? By personally experiencing all the Island has to offer. This way, when you ask: “What should we do today?” We’ve got an endless supply of options for you to choose from! Susan, our innkeeper, has made it her personal mission to give you a little sneak peak of what YOU could be experiencing while here. She does this through her Hospitality Vignettes.
And what, might you ask, is the biggest attraction the San Juan Island has to offer? Whale watching! The Salish sea is home to amazing orcas, porpoises, sea lions, seals, humpbacks, and much much more. Susan gives you an idea of the different tour companies based in Friday Harbor. They have a variety of experiences to choose from!
All footage was taken following the Be Whale Wise guidelines.
Part One: Maya’s Legacy Whale Watching
Susan tests out her whale speak on J1, their newest zodiac boat. “J1 is luxurious, smooth riding and very fast”. Jeff Friedman from Maya’s took the feature photo for this blog the day they went out with Susan. I think she’ll make Dory very proud. Why she has a frog hat, we’ll never know!
Part Two: San Juan Safaris Whale Watching
Get out your notebooks and pens, it’s time to learn about wildlife! Each whale watching tour has an experienced naturalist aboard. Our naturalist, Sarah, was absolutely phenomenal. You seriously do feel like you are in class – except 100 times more fun!
Part Three: Western Prince Whale and Wildlife Tours
Susan snuck out for a ride on Ivan’s Western Explorer. What a fun way to experience wildlife! A big thank you to Western Prince for the stunning footage.
