Foot or Bike
For simplicity, you can't beat walking on the ferry, which even provides a special area for your dog or bike on the car deck. Be ready to board 30 minutes ahead of sailing time and you can even make a reservation at www.takeaferry.com.
Year round, you can leave your car in the convenient lots at the Anacortes ferry terminal and walk onto a Washington State Ferry to any of the four, ferry-served islands - Lopez, Orcas, Shaw and San Juan. Make sure to check out island maps for distances from the ferry landing to main villages, restaurants and lodgings. Bring your bike or rent one on Lopez, Orcas or San Juan Island. Or rent a moped, scootcar or vehicle on Orcas or San Juan. You'll find a seasonal shuttle on Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Islands, and taxi service on San Juan and Orcas Islands.
Your journey around the island begins here. San Juan Transit services all three islands, from May through Labor Day, making scheduled stops at Scenic Byway sites and other attractions on Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Island. We also offer transit, tours and charters. Stop by our office, located next to the Friday Harbor ferry landing, upstairs in Cannery Landing. See our schedules on our website to plan your trip.
