San Juan Islands & Sucia Island

Sep 28, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird

After a night at the dock in Friday Harbor, National Geographic Sea Bird cruised around the San Juan archipelago looking for wildlife and taking in the sights.

Spieden Island is always interesting. Exotic fauna rest and graze among native trees on the south side. The animals were imported for a safari opportunity that didn’t work out as planned, but they still roam free on the island. We also spotted harbor seals, Steller sea lions, and a bald eagle as we inspected the island and its surroundings with binoculars.

Later on, we arrived at Sucia Island and anchored in Echo Bay where there were opportunities for kayaking and hiking during the beautiful afternoon.
