It’s just a short 45 minute scenic seaplane flight to Friday Harbor Marina or Roche Harbor from Seattle’s Lake Union, and just 35 minutes on our Express wheeled aircraft flights to Friday Harbor Airport from Seattle’s Boeing Field. Short & sweet… perfect for a weekend getaway! We even offer exciting 1-day Whale Watching, Kayaking and Bike trips from Seattle.

Discovering something new around every bend in the road is easy on San Juan Island – an alpaca ranch, a sweeping valley dotted with cows or sheep, a terraced lavender farm or a deep forest expanse giving way to the shining sea. There’s lots to do, including sea kayaking, boating, beach combing, scuba diving and hiking at many locations throughout the island. Or come just for one of the many San Juan Island Festivals & Events. San Juan Island is also home to some 90 Orca whales which are usually in residence from the end of April until September.

There are also many fine San Juan island accommodations, including ten San Juan Island B&Bs offering a range of amenities that cater to couples, families and even Fido. Kenmore Air also offers exclusive savings to many San Juan Island hotels, lodges and bed & breakfasts. For information on the very best lodging, food, drink, activities, services and video cams on San Juan Island please visit or
