It may be easier to list what you won’t see. Some of the more common wildlife sightings include minke whales, Dall’s porpoises, harbor porpoises, harbor seals, and river otters. In terms of birds, the San Juans are host to the second largest breeding population of bald eagles in the lower 48 states. Other birds include terns, gulls, ducks, various alcids, and a host of others. In addition last summer we were lucky enough to have sightings of gray whales, a young humpback whale, pilot whales, elephant seals and California sea lions.
