What To Do

Here’s a delightful dilemma: what will you do first during your visit to the San Juan Islands? Go whale watching? Head out on a kayak trip, cycle around Lopez, hike trails through forests or along the water? Climb Mount Constitution on Orcas? Take a drive on the San Juan Islands Scenic Byway? Sample as many island eateries as you can? Stroll the galleries rich with local artists’ works or the enticing boutiques in Friday Harbor, Eastsound and Lopez Village? Relax on a beach and enjoy the long views of sea and mountains? Every island offers you an abundance of choices—luckily, you can’t go wrong.

If you're looking for fun activities for the whole family, such as zip-lining, horseback riding, paddle boating, kayaking or sailing, check out our Family & Kids Activities page.
