Where

 

Southern Resident Superheroes is held in Anacortes, WA on beautiful Fidalgo Island.

 

The specific day to day location will vary based on age group and programming.

 

Every program also includes a special boat ride and hiking adventure on James Island. James Island features emerald coves, forested trails, spectacular views and an isthmus with two white sand beaches!

We can't wait to explore with you. 

Please note:  Seeing Southern Resident orcas is highly unlikely as the population is endangered and spends limited time in our waters.

"During our family's summer reunion, my daughter stood up in front of everyone and told them about how she spent the previous week at Salish Sea School and launched into a full lesson on orcas. She talked about the difference between Southern Residents and transient orcas, interesting facts about southern residents, why their numbers are declining, and things everyone could do to help save the them. Afterwards my mom asked her about it and she said that she had learned that one of the best things she could do to help the orcas is to teach other people about them so that they will care also (or something along those lines). I got several text messages from cousins later saying how impressed they were! So a job very well done by your crew!"
