Nestled in the northwest corner of the contiguous United States between the mainland and the British Islands is an archipelago known as the San Juan Islands, an emerging tourist attraction that is drawing visitors from all over the world. With over 400 islands and rock outcroppings, over 478 miles of shoreline, and a thriving ecosystem, a charter around this little pocket of paradise in the Pacific Northwest should be your next big plan on your travel itinerary.
The San Juan Islands are blessed with whale sightings year round. Killer whales in the waters, for instance, are categorized into two: the residents and the transients. No matter which month you’re planning to go on one of the available San Juan Island charters, you’re likely to see these majestic orcas. The prime months for viewing are May through October.
From March to May, gray whales may also be seen on the south end of one of these islands — and again from October to November. Humpback whales with their haunting songs can also be spotted towards the end of the year. Minke whales, known for their smaller size and long dives, are very hard to study, but about 17 have been spotted on the waters of the islands year round.
