Enjoy a weekend in the San Juan Islands to search for and learn more about orcas, or “killer whales.” This is a trip everyone can enjoy. Watching for orcas just takes patience, sitting on the grass, in lawn chairs, or on a boat. CampSea kayakers wait quietly near Lime Kiln Point State Park for pods of orcas to travel past them on their circuit around San Juan Island. Observe these animals as they circle the island searching for salmon. The fun: This is a trip everyone can enjoy.Watching for orcas just takes patience, sitting on the grass, in lawn chairs, or on a boat. To see orcas from land, take the ferry from Anacortes to Friday Harbor. On the way, start looking for orcas as well as porpoises, seabirds, and harbor seals.
