The San Juan Island Naturalist team is ready to help you see whales this summer! Join friendly volunteers at the Westside Preserve just south of Lime Kiln Park for amazing shore-based whale watching opportunities.

Expert naturalist and local artist Sara Hysong-Shimazu discusses what’s been going on with so many Transient type killer whales in Puget Sound this spring plus stories of some of her favorite local whales. She also breaks down how these orcas are named – a system much different than Resident type killer whales.

Meet up with an expert naturalist at a local park to search for and learn more about land based whale watching and the whales who live in the Salish Sea, in particular our endangered Southern Resident orcas.
