Transportation

There are just as many ways of getting to Orcas Island as there are of getting around on it.  Air services departing from Anacortes, Bellingham, and Seattle provide scheduled flights to the San Juan Islands.  Charter boat and seaplane services are also able to transport tourists directly to a waterside resort or to the town of Eastsound.

Once on Orcas Island visitors can make use of several transportation and rental options to explore the various parks and hamlets.  Rental cars and vans provide just the right combination of mobility and versatility for an island itinerary.  Taxi and shuttle services can deliver tourists straight from the Orcas Ferry Landing to any location on the island.  Quick trips and long tours are both supported on Orcas Island.
