Directions to San Juan Islands Ferry Terminal

   You travel to Orcas Island either by plane or by ferry. The Washington State Ferry System serves Orcas Island from the mainland terminal in Anacortes several times a day, and from Sidney, near Victoria, British Columbia, once daily.

   By car. The drive from Seattle to the Anacortes Ferry Terminal takes about 2 hours. Take I-5 north to the Highway 20 exit just north of Mt. Vernon. Take Highway 20 west, following the signs through Anacortes to the San Juan Islands Ferry Terminal.

   In the summer, the ferries are crowded. Plan to be at the terminal a minimum of 2 hours prior to the scheduled sailing in order to avoid lengthy delays.
