Kingfish at West Sound




Your vacation begins the moment you board the Washington State Ferry. Sit back, relax and adjust to “island time” as you enjoy your cruise through emerald isles on blue seas. The San Juan Islands ferries depart several times each day from Anacortes, Washington, and serve the following four islands: Lopez, Orcas, Shaw and San Juan, as well as Sidney, B.C., Canada. Fares to the San Juan Islands include a round trip. To get to Anacortes from Seattle drive approximately one hour north on Interstate 5 to Exit 230, follow Highway 20 west to Anacortes (for an additional thirty minutes), follow Commercial Avenue north, take a left on 12th St., then continue west for approximately two miles to the Anacortes ferry terminal. The Washington State Ferry offers ferry service for cars, bikes, and walk-on passengers from Anacortes.
