Friday Harbor

Sep 17, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


As the sun rose, we made the short trip from our evening anchorage to the picturesque town of Friday Harbor on the island of San Juan, the second largest island in the San Juan archipelago. While most of us did visit the whaling museum for a short bit, it was largely a time to sample the flavor of this unique town and do some exploring on our own.

About the Author

Steve Morello

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Steve Morello has had a long and colorful career in the natural history world. Born in New Jersey he was lucky to be able to summer on the shores of Cape Cod. Whether it was exploring the tidal pools, snorkeling along the beach, or hiking in the dunes, it all came together to instill in him a deep connection to the natural world. It was no surprise that he would return to the Cape as a whale researcher in his adult years. It was on the Cape that Steve first became involved in guiding, and for 15 years acted as naturalist on whale watching boats in the Gulf of Maine. Steve worked with groups creating environmental education material for school programs and soon found another one of his passions, photography.
