Enjoy Orca whale watching from Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, WA

New Jones Island Trip For Crab & Prawn Lovers

How does this sound?  We leave the dock around 10:00 in the morning, we drop a few crab and spot prawn pots.  Then I drop you off on Jones Island a Marine State Park, so can go for easy hike and enjoy your lunch.  I’ll be back to pick you up around 4:00 in the afternoon, we will then pull our pots and share the bounty!  There’s a crab cooker on the dock for your convenience.

Black Fish Whale and Wildlife Tours. A great tour has a great guide, and Capt. Hobbes is one of the best. He operates year-round.  The highlight of our adventure was the trip around Speiden Island, nicknamed Safari Island.  It is the Jurassic Park of the San Juan Islands, and as you float around it, that is the first description that comes to mind.  In 1969, a group of investors started a for-profit hunting preserve, stocking it with wild grazing animals and game birds.  The hunters are long gone, but many of the animals remain including European Sika deer, Asian Fallow deer and Corsican Big Horn sheep.

In addition to the noon tour, Capt. Hobbes also offers a day trip to Jones Island Marine State Park, which can only be accessed by boat.  He will drop you off in the morning and pick you up in the afternoon.

Open daily at noon, reservation required, Spring St. Landing, Friday Harbor, 360.298.0012,

Quiet season on San Juan Island is a peaceful respite from the daily grind.  Our family was able to disconnect from technology and reconnect with each other, all in a weekend getaway. We will definitely be back and look forward to exploring other islands in the San Juan chain.  Marguerite Cleveland
