A FERRY RIDE IS PART OF THE FUN!!

mt baker san juan islandsAll of our kayak expeditions begin in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island upon the arrival of the morning ferry from Anacortes on the day of your trip. Your reservation confirmation/equipment list will give you ferry departure time from Anacortes and meeting times in Friday Harbor. You can visit Washington State Ferries web site on-line at: http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/ or contact us via phone (360 378 4436) or email: sanjuankayak@rockisland.com if you have any questions.

We suggest you come across the night before your kayak trip (see Accommodations). This will give you an opportunity to explore Friday Harbor and get a restful night before your kayak adventure begins. Either way, leave your car in the Anacortes Terminal overnight parking lot and walk aboard with your gear. This will be less expensive(only $13 round trip per person)and will eliminate the need to have your car in line two hours early. Then sit back and unwind on a picturesque ferry ride to Friday Harbor! Here you will be met at the ferry landing and your kayak journey will begin. If you have spent the night before in Friday Harbor, simply meet everyone at the terminal on Front Street at the appointed time(usually about 9:30AM). Travel to the Anacortes ferry terminal is approximately three hours from Seattle, two hours from Everett, and one and one half hour from Bellingham.  Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time!

After completing a trip, we will transport you to the ferry landing in time for the 4:15(spring) or 4:50(summer) P.M. ferry back to Anacortes(it arrives there at 5:35 or 6:20 P.M.) or to the Friday Harbor Airport for your late afternoon flight to Boeing Field in Seattle.  If you are staying the night in Friday Harbor, we will drop you at your in-town accommodations.
