You will head North through the Skagit Valley to the jumping off point to the world-renowned archipelago. It is here where you board the ferry and cruise to Friday Harbor, keeping an eye out for one of our resident Orcas, Porpoise, Stellar or California Sea lion, Seal, River Otter and many types of seabirds! After picking up your lunch from the Market Chef you will head across the island and into Roche Harbor. Then you will embark on a guided 3-hour ``Orca Search by Kayak!`` in Haro Strait hoping to spot orca up close and personal!* Realizing that seeing Orca whales is really a bonus, your search almost always includes harbor seals, great blue heron, bald eagles, kelp forests, river otter, lots of sea birds and colorful inter-tidal marine life. Furthermore, you will experience at least three wildlife refuges, paddle along remote rugged coastline all the while taking in the views of the Olympic Mountains, Mt. Baker, a cormorant rookery and more. Next you`ll venture to Lighthouse Park for a picnic lunch and glass of wine while spotting for orca at the only State Park in the country devoted to observing orca, ``Lime Kiln State Park.`` Time permitting we will visit the historic American and British ``Pig War`` Camps, where the opposing armies were encamped during a post-Civil War boundary dispute between the United State and England. To the end the day, you will make a quick stop at San Juan Island Winery or the Pelindaba Lavender Farm!
