2013 Auction Sneak Peek – San Juan Excursions
We are very excited to have a 4-hour whale watching cruise from San Juan Excursions. Your 4 hour tour begins in Friday Harbor upon the 65′ yacht, Odyssey, a 1941 converted US Navy search and rescue vessel. The Odyssey has multi-level wrap around decks giving you optimal views or you can watch from the heated main cabin that comes with padded seating, large viewing windows, tables, two restrooms and a snack bar.
During your tour you will be in search of Orca whales, Stellar sea lions, Harbor seals, bald eagles, Harbor porpoise, Dalls porpoise, Gray whales, Pigeon guillemots, Sea gulls, Black oyster catchers, and Great blue heron. San Juan excursions is dedicated to providing you with the ultimate whale watching experience and will give you a free pass for another tour if you don’t see any Orca whales during your adventure.
Each whale and wildlife cruise is joined by two certified marine naturalists who will provide an informative and entertaining experience. You’ll learn about what the whales eat, where they travel, how many there are, how their families stick together, how they communicate ( when conditions are right you can hear the sound of the whales via our hydrophone ), how to identify the orcas, and much more. You are encouraged to take pictures and ask questions.
After touring the San Juan Islands and learning about the wildlife, you will return to Friday Harbor where you can enjoy the local shops, markets, galleries, seafood restaurants and museums. This is not just a 4 hour whale watching tour, this is a memory that will last a lifetime.
