"A Gem in the San Juan Islands" Orcas Island by clamhead

Orcas Island Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 25 photos

Water All Around

We arrived from Vancouver I. B. C. and Friday Harbor, San Juan I. via interisland ferry ...a great way to see the islands close up. We did not see any Orca whales. The next day we went up to Mt. Constitution in Moran State Park, climbed the stone lookout tower, hiked around a pond (with bald eagle) and enjoyed a fresh seafood dinner afterwards.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Semi-isolated, lots of wildlife, good food
  • Cons:A bit hard to travel to & from (water & air only).
  • In a nutshell:Step back into time on a remote Northwest island
