Kayaking is probably one of the best ways to see wild orcas. It benefits both the kayaker and the whales. For one, you give your arms some exercise when you go kayaking. But probably the best thing about whale watching from kayaks is that they don’t produce noise pollution. Boats can sometimes be very noisy and hurt the whales’ ears. Kayaks are silent. Another benefit is how close the whales will get to you. If you wanted to get any closer you’d have to jump in the water with them! The best spot to kayak with whales is the San Juan Islands. The southern residents frequently ploy the chilly waters. Be aware though, that whales are not a guarantee on every trip. They travel up to one hundred miles a day, so you never know where they might be. Even if you don’t see any killer whales, kayaking and enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest is not something you want to miss. Here’s what Anacortes Kayaking Tours had to say about viewing wild killer whales: “They are wild animals and are not here simply for our entertainment.” Kayaking with wild killer whales is definitely on my bucket list. (Photos are not mine, I do not know who the photographers are)
