 View Wild Orcas in the San Juans

The San Juan Islands provide one of the best whale watching opportunities anywhere in the world, offering calm waters and a huge variety of wildlife which includes our three pods of resident Orca whales. There are also humpback, minke, and grey whales that frequent the waters surrounding our departure locations.

Soak in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest as you spot additional wildlife such as eagles, harbor seals, sea lions, porpoise, and many types of sea birds.

If you are visiting the Northwest or are lucky enough to live here, don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

Island Adventures skilled captains and crew have built a rapport with local researchers, sharing information to aid in studying and protecting all whales in the area.

Over the years, they’ve come to recognize each whale’s unique markings and understand their individual personalities.

If the conditions are just right, we can even listen to their conversations by using underwater microphones (hydrophones).


Bring binoculars, camera, and a light coat (it can get cold on the water).

Lunch available on board on your own.

Meet The Host

Judy Albertson

Judy is a lifelong Washingtonian, living in Whatcom County the past 20 years.  She is blessed with a daughter and son and their spouses and six grandchildren.  She is a retired educator and in retirement finds joy in traveling, volunteering, playing bridge, quilting, reading and cooking.

When asked what Judy enjoys about being a tour host she immediately replies, "the people" and  in addition, the tours are fabulous.  She finds the tours fun, interesting and wonderful when the driving is left to an expert safe driver. Her primary focus as a tour host is to make the tour a great experience for the tour guests.

She doesn't have one specific dream trip in mind but likes to look at experiencing new things that she may not have thought of or not had the opportunity to experience.  She says, that is why being a tour host for Bellair Tours has opened the door to many fun experiences and sharing those experiences with new friends.
