    World renown San Juan Islands are favourite for Whale 
    watchers from all over the world. They came to see the 
    Orca that roll, splash and dive beneath the tour boats.

    creatures is between May and September. Lime Kiln State 
    Park on San Juan Island is the only park in the state 
    devoted exclusively to watching whales, primarily Orca.
