About this Trip

With its epic beauty and relaxed atmosphere, San Juan Island is a must-visit for Northwest locals and visitors!

Hop on the San Juan Clipper in the morning for a scenic ride from downtown Seattle’s Pier 69 to the seaside town of Friday Harbor. Soak in stunning views as you clip past the magnificent Cascade Range and glide under historic Deception Pass.
Upon arrival, wander the town’s picturesque streets and grab a bite to eat downtown or rent a moped or bicycle and cruise around the peaceful, quaint town of Roche Harbor. Cap your day by grabbing a local brew at San Juan Island Brewing or check out these other ideas:
