The San Juan Islands are a lush, sweeping expanse you can explore by land or sea. If you’re looking for more adventurous ways to get around while you’re enjoying the local scenery and nature, consider these modes of transportation.

By bicycle

Not only will a bike take you places faster than your feet, but it is also a fun, relaxing way to traverse the roads and hills of the San Juan Islands with your family. You can even set up a guided bicycle tour at San Juan Island Outfitters, which is located in Friday Harbor.

By kayak

Kayaking lets you go where wheels and feet can’t take you and is a great way to see whales, seals, bald eagles, and the other exotic creatures that make their home in the San Juan Islands. You can book a kayak tour at places such as Discovery Sea Kayaks.

By sailboat

If you’d like a taste of life at sea, schedule a sailing tour with up to six passengers at All Aboard Sailing. An experienced captain and wildlife guide will lead you through your leisurely-paced adventure through whale-occupied waters. This option is perfect if you’d prefer not to do your own paddling in the water.

The San Juan Islands will provide you with many unforgettable sights and experiences, but don’t forget to get lots of rest after you’re done with the day’s activities.
