Go whale watching. We boarded the Victoria Clipper for a 3.5 hour ride to the San Juan Islands. It can be rather choppy and they sell motion sickness tablets before you take off – this was necessary for Laura and me. When we arrived we had time for lunch on the harbor and walking around the town. Then we were off on our whale watching adventure. We were lucky to spot many orca whales and each time we saw them it was magical. Another plus – they sell alcoholic beverages on board.
