Start your day off with Kenmore Air and board a floatplane that takes you directly from Seattle to San Juan Island. We recommend hopping on a morning flight so you have plenty of time to explore the island. Soak in the beauty of the San Juan Islands from a bird's eye perspective as you transit to Friday Harbor.

Upon arriving at Friday Harbor, take a walk over to Jacksons beach to look for local wildlife such as bald eagles, harbor seals and river otters. Jackson's is also a great spot for picnic brunch! Numerous picnic tables line the pristine driftwood covered beach.

Enjoy an incredible Adventure Whale Watch & Wildlife Tour with San Juan Safaris. Board the M/V Kestrel, a fast rigid inflatable zodiac vessel. Spend 3-4 hours in a small boat exploring the San Juan Islands in the search for Killer whales, humpbacks, grey whales, mike whales, steller sea lions and much more! Expert naturalists will provide fascinating insights into the behaviors and conservation efforts surrounding these majestic animals, ensuring an educational and awe-inspiring experience.

After your boat excursion, hop back on a Kenmore Aire floatplane and return to Seattle.

Food Recommendations:

  • Rocky Bay Cafe (breakfast & lunch)
  • Mike’s Wine Bar (dinner)

Travel Tips:

  • Book your round-trip Kenmore air floatplane and whale watching as a package, either through Kenmore or San Juan Safaris. We recommend booking well in advance-Floatplanes have limited seating.
  • Bring extra layers! Even in the summertime, traveling in the Salish Sea can be very chilly.
  • Bring a water bottle and sun protection.
