"San Juan Safaris prides itself in providing high quality, small group whale watching and wildlife tours. Our philosophy is to observe, but not interfere with, Orca behavior. We operate two fast, well-maintained U.S. Coast Guard inspected vessels. Our greater speed gives us longer ranges and more sightings. No one else sees more whales than us! Naturalists personally interact with guests, interpreting one of the most unique environments on earth. Each of our naturalists shares our philosophy as well as a deep love of our native wildlife and habitat. In business since 1995, we are among the leaders in our industry – helping to create the wildlife viewing guidelines observed today. San Juan Safaris is located in Friday Harbor just steps from the ferry landing on San Juan Island." (from the business)
