Strait of Juan de Fuca

San Juan Islands, Washington

It’s not uncommon to see orca pods just off the deep shorelines of the remarkable San Juan Islands. On the main island of San Juan, its lively Friday Harbor welcomes tourists with charming bed and breakfasts and gourmet restaurants. Explore the area’s rolling farmlands on a bike tour and hike to the beloved Lime Kiln Lighthouse. Feeling adventurous? Visit the other islands, Orcas and Lopez, where isolated beaches and rolling mountains await you.
