    Whales and wonders in Birch Bay

    Closer to Vancouver than it is to Seattle, Birch Bay encapsulates the beauty of the Pacific Northwest coast as it arcs its way along the cold and icy waters of the Georgia Strait. With Mount Baker looming in the background and rock-studded beachfronts ringing the small towns, you're likely to be spending your days combing through the grass-topped dunes, kayaking between the coves, or spotting orcas splashing their tails out across the sound. Birch Bay vacation rentals come in all shapes and sizes, from cozy waterside cottages to homey lodges with gardens on the edge of the beach.

    With the remote San Juan Islands, and the fish-teeming waters of the Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca right on the doorstep of those Birch Bay vacation rentals, it's easy to see why so many a trip here involves a fishing charter, whale watching, sailing – the list of water-based fun goes on. Others will prefer to stay on dry land, where a smattering of rocky beaches and country clubs awaits. And that's not even mentioning excursions to Vancouver city, sat just an hour's drive to the north.

    Birch Bay has natural draws aplenty

    The real pull of Birch Bay vacation rentals on the water are the natural attractions that abound. You can just look out across the Georgia Strait and hope to see killer whales splashing in the swells. You can glance to the horizon, and on clear days make out the hulking outline of Mount Cook. The Birch Bay State Park has the best of the pebble beaches of the area, backed by dunes and trodden by fist-sized sea crabs in the mornings.

    Birch Bay beckons much of the year

    Because Birch Bay is such a convenient meeting point on the roadways heading north to Canada, its apartments and coastal cottages remain popular throughout the year. That said, there are some peak times to come. For many, they will be with the prime orca-spotting season, which typically runs for the summer but can begin as early as April. Others will prefer to chase the charming fall foliage and sightings of hulking humpback whales – for that you should look to book for September and October.

    Birch Bay is surrounded by nature

    Birch Bay is surrounded by precisely the sort of natural amphitheater you'd expect from an enclave in the middle of the Pacific Northwest. In one direction, you'll see vistas of the Canadian Coast Ranges expanding on the horizon. To the east, the mighty silhouette of Mount Baker in the WA Cascades can be picked out when the weather's clear. Meanwhile, the bays and inlets closer to home are a little softer on the eye. They have sloping pebble coves, are splashed by light waves, and come peppered with humpback and orca whales.
