In the late winter and early spring it is not unusual to have a moose pass through your yard. In the late fall bear will roam the alleys looking for food. Year round it is common to see sea lions or sea otter swimming along the shorelines. Eagles are always to be seen especially during the salmon season.
During certain times of the year whales can be seen from the shore. I have never gone on a cruise and not seen whales.
But remember these are wild animals and they are wondering the streets more often than they are seen.
