Day Trip: San Juan Islands

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Several people have suggested a day trip to the San Juans, so I'm going to post this and see if there's interest.

    What's entailed? The drive from Seattle (using downtown as a starting point) to the Anacortes ferry terminal is about 1hr45min to 2hr15min depending on traffic. Depending on the destination we choose, most sailings are ABOUT an hour, so I'd suggest we tried to get on the 10:35am boat, no later. Return sailing about 6:30-7:30pm would give us a day to explore.

    Carpooling: Could be done FROM Seattle; OR we could meet in Anacortes and carpool from there, saving some ferry fees. Remember, the San Juan's ferry is a "double rate" crossing, so getting your car over and back is about $55, last I checked.

    I just noticed this is an old thread but I would love to visit Friday Harbour where my mother grew up! A car pool would be important. I live in Edmonds. Maybe we could meet at park and rides? This time of year we would be driving in the dark and returning on a ferry after sunset too. Not sure how any more sunny days we have left but still open to the idea!

    It would be nice to carpool from Seattle, if that works for others.

    I am a new volunteer with a few whale education and advocacy organizations in Friday Harbor. I hope this event comes to pass and am happy to help organize.

    This is pretty close to where I live so looking forward to the lighter commute.I haven't been on the ferry in a long time!

    How about Friday Harbour then on Feb 22nd. I am just throwing out a date, but somebody who knows the area may have a better idea of when is a good time. Maybe March is warmer. I am just excited and want to get it going. If that doesn't work, throw out another date?

    sat or sunday would work . the cost could be an issue. yet i do like the idea of a car pool. making it more doable if we shared costs.

    This would be fun. I have not been to the San Juans in years and this is a very HSP thing to do! Great idea.

  • Brian W

    Depending on details. It is frequently sunnier there, so perhaps a day hike or bike ride would be good?

    Would love to go, but have to be very careful with my finances.

    Could I meet some driver at the Greenlake/ Ravenna P&R to carpool?

    February 14, 2012

  • Betsy

    I'd love to go. Better on a Saturday than a Sunday.

    February 6, 2012

  • Lori

    I'd love to go depending on date (would need to be a weekend) and destination. I've never been to Friday Harbour, so that would be fun.

    February 6, 2012

  • Christy

    I haven't been to the San Juans in years. Depending on date, I'm interested. Would prefer to carpool from somewhere North like Stanwood as Faye mentioned.
