"What a fantastic trip! We felt so privileged to share your beautiful waters. The orcas were a real highlight and it was a pleasure to be skippered by such a charming and knowledgeable captain. Thank you so much."

Whether you are looking for an unforgettable whale watch tour or a quality family adventure, Legacy Charters is here to make it happen. Offering whale watching and private charters for groups of six or less assures the most authentic and personalized charters available.
The San Juan Islands are the best place in the world to view orca whales in the wild and our vessels depart from the middle of it all, the west side of San Juan Island. The best months to view orca are from April though September, but a wide variety of other species thrive here as well. In addition to orca, humpback, gray and minke whales, porpoise, sea lions, a diverse variety of sea birds, eagles and seals call the San Juan Islands home year round.
Tours depart daily, year round!
The Legacy Charters office is located just to the left as you exit the Friday Harbor ferry, at #14 Cannery Landing next to Dockside Treasures. Our tours depart from Snug Harbor at the end of Mitchell Bay Rd. See our location page for maps and detailed directions. If you have further transportation questions, we can help. Please just ask!
There are a number of reasons to choose Legacy Charters for your excursion. Our dedicated captains are part of both professional and private networks, constantly receiving and sharing information about local wildlife. When whales are in the area, we know and will get you there! As members of the Pacific Whale Watch Association, we promote responsible wildlife viewing and salmon recovery.
