Ice Cream on Friday Harbor's waterfront

I’m Eva and I’m eight. San Juan Island is my favorite place and Orca whales are my favorite animals. First I get to take the ferry to come visit (make sure your Mom & Dad make reservations!), that’s so cool. There are puzzles on the tables that other people have started and if I get tired of that I can walk (no running, yes, Mom!) around the ferry boat about 12 times and then we are in Friday Harbor.

Mother's day ideas San Juan Island

The next best thing to breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day, is breakfast, brunch or an early lunch on a beautiful island in the Pacific, before a day of whale watching, hiking, exploring the Pelindaba Lavender Farm or the San Juan Island Sculpture Park. Regardless of whether you are an early bird or wake at the crack of noon, Friday Harbor has the place to nourish and pamper you and yours on Mom’s Day.

Whale watching on San Juan Island

There are many reasons to travel to San Juan Island without a car. Maybe you like to tread lightly and mind your carbon footprint. Maybe the Washington State Ferry has no vehicle reservations for your travel dates (you only need reservations when travelling with a car, you never get turned away walking on). Maybe you are flying in with Kenmore Air or taking the Victoria Clipper passenger only ferry from Seattle. There are so many things to do here without a car, starting with your accommodations

Whale watching on San Juan Island

Visiting San Juan Island doesn’t have to burn a hole in your pocket. It is true, things are a bit more expensive here than on the mainland. Just think that everything, from pillow to nail, from gas to coffee has to be shipped or flown over. Wages, taxes and utilities, especially drinking water, are much higher. But don’t let that keep you from experiencing beautiful San Juan Island with its pristine nature, astonishing wildlife and amazing culture. There are tons of fun, unique things to do here which only require your presence and sense of wonder and don’t cost a thing. Come explore!
