Photo Fave: The ferry from San Juan Island

To spice up any family road trip, add one ferry boat ride. In the San Juan Islands, a ride from Anacortes will not only lead you through spectacular scenery freed from your car seats and seat belts, all with the chance of spotting orcas and other wildlife, but you can eat hot dogs and popcorn, and drink a cold beer at the same time. With kids, the entertainment is clearly built-in. After exploring multiple levels of the ferry, getting snacks, and waving to sailboats, there will inevitably be a playdate with other young kids onboard at this helm for wee-skippers-in-training. Let everybody have a turn, please!

    The “San Juans” is a term applied to a chain comprised of hundreds of small islands almost half of which are submerged at high tide.

    The most popular islands are San Juan Island (and its busy port at Friday Harbor), Orcas Island (Rosario), Lopez & Shaw

    Four separate ferry systems serve the San Juan Islands. From Seattle, Bellingham, Port Angeles and Port Townsend there are seasonal passenger ferries to Friday Harbor.
