We took Kenmore Air through San Juan Safari's adventure whale watching tour. It is well worth the price! I highly recommend taking a day and adding this to your Seattle vacation.

Loved it. We'd booked well in advance and were blessed with great weather on the day. A fantastic flight around the city with great views of the Space Needle and impressive lakeside properties. If you get the chance, do this trip.
