Yes, the wait could easily be 2-3 hours as David said. You want to leave Vancouver as early in the day as you can, especially since it looks like you're planning to take a ferry to the San Juans on a Friday which is never a good idea. If you're taking a car on the ferry, plan on arriving at least 2 hours ahead of the sailing you want, and more like 3-4 hours later in the day.

For your query, it's best to start a new string. This one is dated, the title does not portray what you ask, and it's not in the right forum. Not your fault, just trying to be helpful for you and for us.

Here an Inside Page for you:

San Juan Islands (Information on the several major islands, with key websites.)


Yes, you can expect a wait as noted in prior posts. The Inside Page provides hints about accessing the islands.

I would definitely arrive two hours or more before the ferry departure time especially if on a Friday. I would allow two hours to get to the ferry from downtown Seattle, though you might make it in 1.5 hours. But, rather than have your stomach in knots...
