San Juan Islands travel guide

Dolphin & Whale Watching · State Parks · Landmarks
Experience island living Pacific Northwest-style by visiting the San Juan Islands. Of the 176 named islands here, Lopez, Orcas, and San Juan are the three that cater to visitors. Orca whales roam the waters from April to September, and rolling farmland inland gives way to small coastal towns filled with art galleries and boutiques. The islands' small mountains offer vistas over the water to the snow-capped peaks of the Olympic mountain range. The island region offers prime sea kayaking, biking tours, birding, and saltwater fishing. The populated isles attract a lot of summer tourism but remain quiet the remainder of the year.
