Location

Car: not necessary

San Juan Island is the best area to actually see Orca whales in the wild easily during the summer months. Fall and Spring it is a birders paradise with many species passing through en route to their winter home or summer breeding grounds. Many birds reside here in the winter, most beautiful are the Trumpeter Swans and the Great Blue Heron, plus the largest population of Bald Eagles outside of Alaska, reside in the San Juan Islands. We have 3 National Parks on our small beautiful island so there are a lot of opportunities for hiking on the well marked trails. Please inquire about each individual unit on our web site; fridayharborvr(dot)com
