Friday Harbor, San Juan Island

— 3 nights
The tiny town of Friday Harbor is the largest village on the San Juan Islands, and it fits within just 2.6 km (1 sq mi) of space.
Kids will enjoy Dolphin & Whale Watching and The Whale Museum. There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Zip San Juan, take in the exciting artwork at Island Studios, don't miss a visit to English Camp, and experience rural life at Pelindaba Lavender Farm.

Plan trip to Friday Harbor with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

San Juan Islands travel guide

4.7
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.
