Friday Harbor is the gateway to San Juan Island. The island as a whole contains 15 mountain peaks and the largest breadth of county shoreline in the United States.
Over the years, tourists have treaded lightly on the surrounding area and preserved most of the native terrain. As a result, sports and outdoor mavens can still enjoy kayaking, hiking, and an array of physical activities all year long.
Kayaking is a highly popular, low-impact sport catered to all levels of enjoyment. The luke warm, Pacific ocean and its numerous straits are ideal locations for kayakers. There are several tour companies in Friday Harbor.
Beginners should seek companies that maintain a low student-instructor ratio. Advanced paddlers and swimmers can look forward to mult-day excursions and hard-to-reach inlets.
Tourists who do not like to splash around with porpoises and sea lions may desire a bicycling tour. Bicycling also is available at many different levels. Simply rent a bike or moped for an easy day in town.
A full tour typically includes a guide, lodging, and food for a 4-day or more theme trip. Coastal byways, waterfalls, and rolling hills are characteristic vistas on Friday Harbor bike trails.
