Adventure Vacations

Kayaking San Juan Island

If your idea of an adventure vacation is one where adventure is offered on many levels in a spectacular setting, where possibilities abound and lifetime memories are created, San Juan Island is for you.

Just getting here is an adventure.  Accessible only by sea or air, San Juan Island transportation could involve an hour’s ferry ride with lush forests and rocky crags all around, or an eye-popping aerial view to the archipelago from a seaplane or commuter plane.  Once you have settled in at Harrison House Suites or Tucker House Inn, it is time to head out for more thrills.

You can zipline through the forest, rent a moped or motorcycle and explore the San Juan Island roads, or you can hike one or more of the forty-plus trails.  Be sure to save some energy for a 3 hour whale watching tour seeking Killer Whales, Humpbacks, Bald Eagles, Elephant Sea Lions, and Dahl’s porpoises.   Dress in layers for your guided kayak tour, and bring your tackle box for world class fishing.


Scuba dive some of the nineteenth century shipwrecks off the coast of the Island, go check some birds off your lifelist on a hike of Mt. Grant, and round up some friends to go horseback riding.  Just before sundown, take a 2 hour cruise on a schooner.

Wait, you say, I need a break to eat and sleep!  Your day at the Inns begins with a three course, gourmet breakfast.  We can send you off with a wave and a picnic lunch, and make reservations for you each night at a different island restaurant.  Your room is designed for comfort and quiet, with fluffy beds and lots of pillows.  Here are a few of the amenities offered to guests at Harrison House Suites and Tucker House Inn:
