Locals refer to Orcas Island as “The Emerald Isle” or “The Gem of the San Juans”. Whatever you choose to call it, it’s a winning combination of stunning shorelines, the highest mountain in the islands and a handful of charming hamlets.

On Orcas you can visit one of the nation’s most beautiful parks, the 5,252-acre Moran State Park where you can hike, bike or swim. You can also drive, bike or hike up Mt. Constitution, the islands’ highest point where you’ll get a 360° breathtaking panoramic view of island-dotted ocean and a snow-capped Mt. Baker. Or see things from an eye level view and head out on the water for a kayak trip, a whale-watching tour, fishing or a sailboat charter.

This beautiful island has something for everyone … kayak in the Puget Sound; climb a mountain trail to enjoy the beautiful vistas; see Orca whales and marine wildlife; stroll through Eastsound village, exploring the small town shops; or enjoy a wide array of superb dining choices. There are also many year-round Orcas Island Festivals & Events. For information on the best lodging, food, drink, activities and video cams on Orcas Island please visit
