Default Best way to Whale Watch San Juans

Anyone have any tips for being able to find whales and do some whale watching around the San Juan’s? Is there a VHF channel to listen in on to the tours coordinating their efforts? I’m assuming there’s a way to go where they are going and watch some whales.

They keep their communication secure to keep the undesirables at bay.

Join the trawler forum and ask you question there under "General Discussion."

Another way to head to the whale watching boat touring areas and just follow one of them out:

probably too late for OP but the Orcas are most frequently in Haro Straight, west side of san juan island. lime kiln state park (on SJI) is the best place to see them from land.

But, you can see them all over up there. look for whale watching boats or a slowly moving group of mismatched boats.

good luck. and if you find them, PLEASE give them their space.

PS: There are whale watching rules but I don't know the American ones, so check out the rules for watching marine wildlife in your area.
