South and West San Juan Island Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Kayakers come here for two distinct reasons. The first is whales: Haro Strait is the best place to see orcas during the summer months. Lime Kiln State Park was developed primarily for public observation of the whales that pass offshore regularly. The second is the barren beauty: the largely treeless southwestern coast of San Juan Island is unique for the Northwest. The exposure to southerly and westerly winds and big seas along its beaches make it all the wilder. But to the north, western San Juan Island has a gentler face with inter-island channels and the accessible historical attractions of English Camp."
