You can pull off a day trip to Orcas Island if you board the ferry by foot. If you want to take your car with you, I highly advice making it an overnight trip. The wait at the ferry terminal to take your car on can take up to two hours and the ferry to Orcas Island doesn't come by as often.The whale watching tour boat was right next to the ferry terminal, so we opted to leave our car on the main land. Also we couldn't find any place to stay on the island, not even camping. A lady on the boat with us told us that she was only able to reserve camping because everything else was booked, and she did that months in advance.
|The best picture of me taken on the boat. The wind was blowing so hard and I had to keep a hold of my shirt from flopping up. No I'm not pregnant, just to clear any questions up.|
