the east side of San Juan Island is the town of Friday Harbor,
also the San Juan County Seat. Friday Harbor, a quaint seaport,
rises from the ferry landing and public marina where it is
an easy stroll to the town's docks, parks, restaurants, shops,
galleries and lodging facilities.
This historic seaport in the heart of the Salish Sea is nestled
between three magnificent cities of the Pacific Northwest:
Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria. Far from the city life, yet
conveniently close, Friday Harbor is authentically preserved
by its maritime history. It is one square mile of walkable
seaside activity, recreation and culture. In Friday Harbor
there are no stop lights (none in the county) - but the New
York Times is flown in daily.
Be sure to take advantage of Rose Air's Friday Harbor charter
air taxi. Landing right on the island beats long ferry rides
and even longer interstate travel. Plus, our Friday Harbor
sky taxi offers you aerial vies of the islands you just cannot
get while on land.
