Getting here is half the fun and there are so many easy options to choose from:
- A leisurely ride on a Washington State Ferry from Anacortes gives you a taste of the archipelago's beauty, with a choice of stops at four islands—Lopez, Orcas, Shaw or San Juan. You can now make a reservation at www.takeaferry.com. Ferries will accommodate cars as well as walk-on passengers.
- Fly from Seattle or SeaTac International Airport on a Kenmore Air seaplane or wheeled-plane, or take regional flight
- Rent a car and come up on the Wa State Ferry.
- Take an Airporter Shuttle from SeaTac to Anacortes
- Hop on the seasonal Victoria Clipper from Seattle's waterfront, arriving at the ferry terminal
- When you get to the islands, find out how to get around with shuttles, mopeds and car rentals.
