Seattle and Vancouver - Whale watching trip question

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip for several families (with kids) to Seattle/Vancouver area in July for one week. Instead of spending a lot of time on ferries, we are sticking primarily with Seattle and Vancouver. Plan is to spend first three nights in Seattle to explore Seattle and take a day trip to Rainier. Next 2 nights in Bellingham for a day cruise to Friday Harbor/whale watching and a day trip to Mt. Baker. One night in Vancouver and last night prior to flying out is back in Seattle. I am looking at San Juan Cruises for an all day cruise to Friday Harbor/whale watching trip out of Bellingham. Is this a good trip or too much time on a boat? Would a better alternative be to take a passenger ferry (WSDOT) to Friday Harbor and then catch a whale watching trip from there?

Any comments/suggestions on the itinerary would be appreciated as well. The kids are mostly teenagers - we are an active group.
