The Harrison House Suites in Friday Harbor is the perfect base for “day tripping” to neighboring islands. The Washington Ferry System runs regularly scheduled ferries between San Juan’s Friday Harbor and Orcas, Lopez, Shaw Islands. Travel to the other islands via foot or by bicycle is free; there is a nominal charge for a vehicle.
Each Island has its own distinct character, and features a range of outdoor activities at county and state parks. As you drive to Anacortes from Seattle, don’t miss the breathtaking Deception Pass Bridge that connects Fidalgo Island and Whidbey Island on your way to or from the San Juan Islands.
If you want to hop around the island on a moped, contact Susie’s Mopeds.
For guests who choose to come as foot passengers, San Juan Transit provides tours and island transportation during the high season months.
