San Juan Islands Orca Whale Watching Kayak Trips: The San Juan Islands of Washington are famous as the top orca whale watching location in the United States. The first park in the world dedicated to whale watching was created here. Our San Juan Island kayak tours are designed as orca whale watching kayak trips. Of all orca whale sightings in Washington state, over 95% occur in just one relatively small area that forms the western edge of the San Juan Islands. This is where the killer whales do nearly all of their hunting and playing. And it's the exact location where Sea Quest kayak trips take you orca whale watching! Our sea kayaking routes are planned to maximize your chances to kayak with orcas. We don't see them every time, but about 2/3rds of our kayak trip guests enjoy killer whale sightings. Remember, these are wild orca whales and they don't perform on schedule, so we can't guarantee success on every kayak trip! Be sure to check out our blog http://www.sea-quest-kayak.com/blog for monthly reports on how the whales are doing and our recent whale watching success rates. Sadly, there are companies that advertise kayaking with the orcas in the San Juan Islands that never kayak in the primary orca whale watching area. It is very unlikely that you will be killer whale watching on their kayaking trips. They may see the orca whales once a month or week, but we often see them several times a day! Remember, Sea Quest has been leading kayak tours for over 20 years and our San Juan Island kayak trips are guided by actual biologists and environmental scientists that can tell you about the lives of these amazing animals. Our record of success is the best! Kayak Whale Watching in the San Juan Islands: Many people ask us if it is safe to kayak with orcas. The answer is an emphatic YES! These intelligent whales have never injured a human in the wild. (Only ill-treated captive orca whales have harmed people.) Orca whales are extremely aware of their surroundings and NEVER collide with kayaks. They approach kayaks with the same respect that we offer them. The killer whales of the San Juan Islands are the most studied whales in the world; they in turn have observed humans for at least six thousand years. Stable family groups, called pods, represent several generations and include grandmothers (the pod leaders), adolescents, infants, and huge bulls. Each family member is recognized by its distinctive markings and can live as long as a human. Much of what is known about the orca whale's highly-organized social life has been learned from the resident pods you can watch from kayaks in the San Juan Islands of Washington. The beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington state are the most popular summer kayaking tour destination in the world. Friday Harbor is easily accessed from Seattle, and the San Juan Islands lie within the Puget Sound and straddle the US-Canada border where Washington meets British Columbia. The rural archipelago encompasses several hundred islands, rocks, and reefs. Hundreds of miles of twisting shorelines are perfect for exploration on sea kayak tours. The sheltered waters of the San Juans are the perfect place for beginners to kayak with killer whales.
