Maya’s Legacy Whale Watching

Our passenger-centered approach and reputation for going the distance assure you the best whale watching experience possible. Our whale & wildlife tours are fun, informative and interactive. Great for family groups and guests of all ages, we focus on small group tours so there’s no competition for the best view.

  • The San Juan Islands, just north of Seattle, Washington, is the best place in the world to view orca whales in the wild. Our tours depart from two convenient locations: Snug Harbor on the west side of San Juan Island, and Friday Harbor, within walking distance from the ferry. For more detailed directions, please visit our location page.
  • Spend more time with wildlife and less in transit! Enjoy and experience our regional wildlife with the maximum amount of viewing time.
  • Offering whale watching tours and private charters for small groups assures the most authentic and personalized experience available.
  • We go the distance – In the event whales are outside the common viewing area, we have a reputation for getting you there. We have often seen whales when other local companies have not.
  • Every tour is hosted by two knowledgeable and personable guides, dedicated to helping make the most out of your time on the water. We’ll take great care of you.
  • Extras on board to enhance your experience; quality binoculars, blankets, and hydrophones so you can hear whales too!
