San Juan Island is truly a unique and diverse location offering a wealth of activities for such a relatively small little island! Surrounded by the Salish Sea, wildlife and water activities abound. Peruse through the activities listed here, or give us a call to see how we can help customize your trip just for you.
The San Juan Islands with its gorgeous beaches and rocky shores, formed by ancient glaciers, its wooded hills and lush pastures, is home to over 300 species of migratory and non-migratory birds. We have the highest concentration of Bald Eagles (a breeding pair for each mile of shoreline) and Peregrine Falcons in Washington State. Find Red foxes on our prairies, along with an abundance of bunnies. It is common to see deer and otter on the beaches and seals and sea lions in the sea.
There is a lot of history to explore on gorgeous San Juan Island! In addition to the deeply-rooted Native American history, the isle has a most fascinating natural history and of course is best known for the Pig War of 1859 and its ensuing 12-year peaceful occupation by British and American forces. And the best part, history on San Juan Island is not explored in dark, dusty museums with long, boring descriptions of what went down. No. History on San Juan Island lives on the prairie and on the beach and is experienced in song and stories, by participating, listening, feeling and touching.
