Whale Watching

The best orca viewing is off San Juan Island, and San Juan Safaris is located in the thick of whale watching territory in Friday Harbor just steps from the ferry landing on San Juan Island. We see more whales than any other tour company!

Kayak Tours

The San Juan Islands are the best place in the world to view killer whales, and viewing them from a kayak is an experience like none other. Our sister company San Juan Island Outfitters offers multiple sea kayaking tours daily, no experience necessary.

Additional Services

San Juan Safaris provides water taxi services to get you around the islands: Stuart Island, Orcas Island, Lopez Island or even to Victoria, British Columbia. And don’t forget to check out our gift shop for unique orca-themed gifts and more.
