Washington State Ferries
Getting here is half the fun aboard a ferry! Washington State Ferries offer plentiful, comfortable booth seating with marvelous views, as well as access to spacious forward and aft viewing (and picture-taking) areas outside. Depending on stops, the ride takes between 50 and 90 minutes to your island of choice. Tickets purchased in Anacortes are for a round-trip. Be sure to check the ferry schedule for seasonal departures and best travel times.
Board a Washington State Ferry in Anacortes, Washington, for a spectacular, scenic cruise to Lopez, Orcas, Shaw or San Juan Islands. You can also take a ferry to Sidney, B.C., just north of Victoria. In addition, you can "island hop" between our four, ferry-served islands. You can walk on with or without a bicycle, or drive your car on. Schedules change each season; visit our website for schedules, fares, parking, etc.
