San Juan Islands ferry wait time

For travelling in August, what would be the best time to cross on the ferry from Anacortes to the Islands? How would Monday mid-morning work?

Should be no problem as long as it is not a three day weekend.

My husband and I have reservations to stay on San Juan island July 1st - 4th. I was wondering what the expected wait time is when we are trying to go from the Anacortes ferry station to Friday Harbor? Any tips on how to avoid long lines? If we leave the car behind and go on foot is that a million times better? Returning on July 4th from Friday Harbor to the main land, will that be horrible too?
