"San Juan Islands/ Orcas Island" Orcas by falicia2000

Orcas Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 25 photos

The San Juan Islands are located between the coast of Washington state and Vancouver Island, Canada. The most common way to get there is drive north from Seattle about 85 miles to Anacortes. Auto carrying ferries will take you to the islands and even on to Vancouver Island if you choose. You'll want ferry reservations if traveling between US & Canada during tourist season by calling (206) 464-6400, or (888) 808-7977 if in WA, but reservations are not available if staying within the US. The phone system can be PAINFULLY slow at times. Personally I much prefer making the reservations through the secure web site at https://secure.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/webres/
