*FULL* San Juan Island Adventure I (Sun-Fri)

Experience the awesome beauty of the islands!

Travel by ferry into the Puget Sound and straight into some of the most incredible, awe-inspiring scenery in the entire United States! Spend an entire week exploring the islands’ unique natural history and rich biodiversity as you search for species large and small. We’ll keep a lookout for the pods of Orca Whales that hunt for salmon in the Salish Sea. We’ll seek out the elusive River Otters that have adapted to a marine life, and we’ll bird to our hearts’ content, keeping an ever-vigilant eye for the Bald Eagles that inhabit the islands.

During this action-packed week, you’ll learn how to sea kayak as you explore tidal areas in these unique watercraft. You’ll also get to visit the Whale Museum in Friday Harbor and head out to sea on a whale-watching cruise to learn even more about the fascinating Orca Whale. We’ll hike the beautiful forests of Orcas Island and swim in its pristine mountain lakes. Spend three nights in the lush forests of Moran State Park and the rest of the week at a campsite on San Juan Island that overlooks the Sound, and is the only campground in the lower 48 states where you can see whales without even having to get out of your tent.

All transportation and meals are provided. Participants supply their own camping gear.
