San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau
The San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau is the official destination marketing & management organization (DMO) for the San Juan Islands, contracting with both San Juan County and the town of Friday Harbor. We work closely with the Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Island Chambers of Commerce which provide visitor information services at their locations.
Our mission is "To enhance the economic prosperity of San Juan County by promoting the San Juan Islands as a preferred, year-round travel destination, while respecting and sustaining the Islands' unique and diverse ecosystems, environments, lifestyles, and cultures."
We are a membership organization and currently serve approximately 300 members on all four islands. If you are interested in membership, you can print out and mail in an application, or contact Carole Sue Conran at (360) 378-9551 ext. 1 if you have questions.
