Fodor's Review

To watch whales cavorting in Haro Strait, head to these 36 acres on San Juan's western side just 6 miles from Friday Harbor. A rocky coastal trail leads to lookout points and a little white 1919 lighthouse. The best period for sighting whales is from the end of April through August, but a resident pod of orcas regularly cruises past the point. This park is also a beautiful spot to soak in a summer sunset, with expansive views of Vancouver Island and beyond.
