San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau

Washington State’s beautiful San Juan Islands are located just 12 miles east of Victoria, just across the waters of Haro Strait. From Victoria, travel to the San Juans by Washington State Ferry (from Sidney), boat or air. Include a visit to Lopez Island, Orcas Island, and San Juan Island/Friday Harbor on your Pacific Northwest vacation! Slow your pace to “island time” and enjoy orca whale watching, birding and wildlife tours, hiking, bicycling, boating, sailing, scuba diving, golfing, exploring hamlets and villages, browsing art galleries and boutiques, dining in water-view restaurants, beachcombing and more. Discover the Islands’ natural beauty, contrasting landscapes and tranquil mystique.
