Orcas Island has long been rated as one of the best island getaways in North America, and rightly so. Beautiful state and local parks offer family friendly opportunities to see and experience the beauty and bounty of nature. Hiking is one of the most popular tourist attractions on Orcas, and is often combined with picnicking and swimming at one of the lake loop trails in Moran State Park. Camp sites and resort cabins provide the full range of country leisure for short vacations or extended tours.
Marine tourist attractions are equally prevalent. Boaters often stop at Orcas for day visits, or to stay at one of the island’s classic waterfront resorts. Bikers and motorists can choose from quiet country inns, or head into town for more familiar hotel accommodations. Marine adventure options continue with whale watching and charter tours that circle Orcas and run all over San Juan County. Kayaks can be rented, with the support of professional instructors, from several waterside locations.
With ever-changing cycles of nature, each tour is unique. You will discover the excitement of meeting whales, eagles and more in their natural habitat. An unpredictable wilderness, full of surprises, is waiting just for you. You will never forget it!
