Getting Here is Half the Fun
Whether you ride a Washington State Ferry from Anacortes, fly by seaplane from Seattle's Lake Union, transfer from SeaTac to a regional flight, or hop on the sleek Victoria Clipper in downtown Seattle, arriving at the ferry terminal or boarding your plane marks the beginning of your San Juan Islands vacation.
Getting here is half the fun! A leisurely ride on a Washington State Ferry gives you a taste of the archipelago's beauty, with a choice of stops—Lopez, Orcas, Shaw, or San Juan, the largest, ferry-served islands. By plane you'll have a more expansive view—snow-tipped Mt. Baker, the Olympic and Cascade ranges, and islands stretching in every direction.
