Depart Friday Harbor, Spring Street Landing


Join Friends of the San Juans and birding experts on a special winter birds boat trip. With just 8 people aboard, this tour will be intimate and informed and provide in-depth knowledge about seasonal wildlife in the San Juans.

Peter Cavanagh, NASA researcher, University of Washington professor, photographer, and bird expert will be joining us in addition to Sean O’Connell, a naturalist and life-long birder. The route is weather dependent, but we are hoping to visit Griffin Bay and the south end of Lopez. We may also travel to the shores of Spieden Island.

Peter’s photographs of Pacific Northwest birds will be on display starting March at the Seattle Aquarium. Learn more about Peter and the exhibit here:

This micro-adventure boat tour will connect you to rarely seen locations and special experiences. Sign up early! The $100 admission fee covers the cost of the boat and is not tax-deductible.
