Local Adventures

Orcas Island Whale Watching

While staying at The Lodge on Orcas Island, make sure you spend the day investigating the rocky shoreline of Orcas Island by kayak.  Get to know the local Orca pods, seals, Blue Herons, otters, and other marine life on a whale watching excursion.  Discover the San Juan Islands by sailboat.

Explore the trails and lakes of Moran State Park on foot and observe our abundant and diverse population of birds.  Soak up pristine vistas from the top of Turtleback Mountain.  Lose yourself in the pastoral scenery as you bike through Crow Valley.  Hike eight minutes down a wooded trail to Crescent Beach.

Trek a little further to hunt for treasures in the quaint shops of Eastsound Village where you can also pick up some artisan cheese, crusty bread and other delicious snacks for a picnic on one of your adventures.
