One of the things my dad wanted to do this trip was to go to the San Juan Islands and go on an excursion to see the orca whales. We loaded up the crew and drove to Anacortes to catch the ferry over to Friday Harbor. After walking around Friday Harbor, we had lunch at the waterfront and then boarded the whale watching boat. It was to be about a 3 hour tour. The whales had been spotted around Vancouver Island, so we headed over there. Unfortunately, since it took a while to find out where the whales were, we only had a few minutes before we had to head back to Friday Harbor. It was a long day, but everyone had a great time.
