Sea Lions and Mt Baker by Maya's Legacy Whale Watching Charters

Pristine San Juan Island, a mere 65 miles north of Seattle, is a haven for wildlife at sea and on land alike.  The iconic Orca and impressive Humpback whales along with the mighty Steller sea lions make the waters around San Juan Island their home. The island lies within the Pacific Coast Flyaway, which extends from Alaska to South America, making it a popular stop for migratory birds, like the majestic Trumpeter Swans or a waterdance of Loons. Spring is a marvelous time to see bald Eagles teaching their young how to fly, baby foxes frolicking on the prairie and baby seals waiting absolutely still on a rock waiting for their Mom to come back from dinner hunting.

We hope you enjoy this article by our guest blogger, Lisette Wolter-McKinley:

When we want to feel like we have gotten away from it all without traveling too far or spending too much money we like to visit the San Juan Islands. Last weekend we spent a lovely long weekend on San Juan Island. We stayed at one of our favorite places, the Bird Rock Hotel ...

"What a delightful place to stay!...

The staff is wonderful and the little extras

make it a comfortable place to stay."
