Planning Ahead For Group Tours

The best advice we can give is to plan ahead, travel safely and use common sense. If you are bringing a group tour or bus to the San Juan Islands, here are some helpful guidelines that will make your trip safer, easier and more enjoyable.

  • Vehicles and Groups: For certain types of multi-person vehicles (such as tour busses) or group activities, you may need a permit to visit National, State, or County Parks. Contact the chamber of commerce on your desired island about how to obtain a permit.
  • Film Crews: If you are planning to film or photograph in county, state, or national parks or ports, you must obtain a permit. Contact the San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau to find out how to apply for access.
  • Some roads on the islands can be narrow and winding, making them potentially dangerous to navigate for large vans and buses. Make sure to check with the chamber of commerce on your desired island for road conditions.
