Thank you for your questions regarding traveling the San Juan Islands. There are car rentals available from Friday Harbor, but to our knowledge there are no companies that allow for a drop off on other islands. We suggest contacting M&W Auto or Suzie's Mopeds for further details about auto rentals in the islands.
There is just one passenger ferry that goes from Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, directly to Seattle - the Victoria Clipper. The Washington State Ferry is the only ferry service that stops at various islands and goes to Anacortes, Washington. Anacortes is approximately an hour and a half to two hours drive from Seattle. There are also flights available from Seattle to Friday Harbor; Northwest Seaplanes, Kenmore Air and Westwind Aviation.
I hope this information is helpful. Please send us an email or give us a call if we can be of further help with your specific logistics.
Happy travels on behalf of Maya's Legacy Whale Watching,
Hello. My husband & I are traveling to SJI for our honeymoon in mid May. I would Love to do a whale watching trip but I am worried that it is disruptive to the whales. It would be amazing to see them up close, Wild and free but I could not enjoy it if I was on a boat among many filled with humans crowding around a pod. I have heard that some tours are more ecofriendly than others in this way. I have also heard that there is a distance requirement & am wondering how this works. We are staying in an ocean view rental near Lime Kiln Park so we may see them from shore. If that is better for the whales, then we don't have to do a whale watching boat tour.

Hello, thank you for your question. Our vessels, along with the other whale watching boats in the area, strictly abide by federal regulations as well as voluntary guidelines established by the Pacific Whale Watch Association so that our tours allow us to view the whales without impacting them. We appreciate and share your love for the whales and we do not crowd them and observe slow speed limits within a half mile of whales. It is also great to see them from shore and it would be great if you get to see them from your rental and/or from Lime Kiln Park. We'd also love to have you onboard as the whales are often within range for a boat but not visible from the west side of the island. In addition to Orcas, May can be a great time for Humpbacks. We also see a lot of other wildlife on our tours and try to experience as much of the amazing ecosystem around the island. Thanks again for your question and for your concern for the whales.
Just curious about times of day people did the tour...and how lucky you got seeing orcas. Trying to decide between the 10am and 1:30 (afraid sunset would be chilly, and don't want my kid complaining ; ) ). Anyone have any experiences around times to share?

We did 1:30 and saw an awesome Humpback whale. There is plenty of room on the boat to stash extra clothes!
