San Juan Islands
The San Juan Islands are an archipelago found off the northwest coast of Seattle, Washington. These magnificent islands provide visitors with the rare opportunity to spot wildlife such as their 3 pods of resident Orca whales, harbor seals, and river otters. The area is also the most highly concentrated area of bald eagles in the continental United States. The anchorage and sea ports provide ample opportunities for hiking, bird watching, SCUBA diving, shopping, or simply a quiet place to relax. Global Treks and Adventures travels to the San Juan Islands each June - August. Please send in a trip request form soon to reserve your spot in 2015. Welcome aboard!
