    Orca, Humpback and Minke Whales, Bald Eagles, Harbor Seals, Dall’s Porpoise,
    sea birds, and other wildlife. These magnificent animals are always a treat to
    behold in their natural environment. We’ll sail to Friday Harbor on San Juan
    Island, which will be our home for two nights. The rest of the afternoon is set
    aside to explore on your own. You can enjoy Friday Harbor or head to your
    hotel room for some relaxation. Tonight we’ll eat dinner overlooking the Friday

    other magnificent wildlife. Sea birds abound and the San Juan islands are home
    to more Bald Eagles than anywhere else in the lower 48 states. We’ll arrive at
    a unique, horse-shoe shaped destination named Sucia Island State Park where
    we’ll enjoy a picnic on the beach. Afterwards, you’ll have the opportunity for
    short hike through the forest, some fossil hunting, or a walk along some of
    the most stunning shorelines in the Northwest. After our unforgettable visit
