Whale Watching in the San Juan Islands

3 Orcas porpoising - photo taken from the Island Caper

Whale watching is one of the most popular past times in the San Juan Islands. Have you ever seen a whale breach... heard the whoosh of air exhaling through its blowhole or been amazed by the sheer beauty of a pod of orcas gliding through glassy waters? Resident killer whales (orcas) play in the waters of Rosario Straight on the west side of Lummi Island, providing a fulfilling experience for visitors watching either from the shoreline or a boat. Three families can be found in the islands each summer. Their families are called pods and range in size from 17 whales in K-pod to more than 50 in L-pod. Other types of whales occasionally seen in the area are minke whales and gray whales. There are approximately 115 resident minke whales. Gray whales are not a common sight. Sometimes one of the huge cetaceans will travel through the San Juan Islands on its way to the open ocean.
