“whale watching pro!”

Lime Kiln Point is a 36-acre day-use park set on the west side of San Juan Island. The park is considered one of the best places in the world to view whales from a land-based facility. Orca whales are common in the waters off Lime Kiln. The park, which features a richly diverse environment, includes the remnants and landscapes of a history filled with change, along the rocky shoreline and through the wooded uplands. NextPrevious Situated on a rocky point, this park is a popular whale-watching location. Minke whales, orcas, porpoises, seals, sea lions, and otters cruise the shoreline. The peak whale-watching season is May - September, with June and July being the most likely months to see whales.The lighthouse was built in 1919 and still serves as a navigational beacon for ships in the Haro Strait. Interpretive programs and lighthouse tours are available during the summer months.

Such a cool place. We picnicked by the water while watching for whales. No luck seeing whales, but it was still so fun and so pretty. A nice short hike with great views. I was really hoping to see orcas, maybe next time!

The lighthouse itself is an amazing attraction, but the surrounding area makes for a great picnic spot and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding islands. We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in the San Juan Islands!
