We are planning a trip in early September, and will be staying on Whidbey Island for 3 nights. We will have a rental car. We definitely want to visit San Juan and Orcas Islands. Is taking the car by ferry a better option than using the islands' shuttle service? Also, would taking the ferry on separate days for each island be a better choice, or would one day be enough for both islands? We aren't big hikers, and are more into aesthetic views and interesting food.
Any info would be GREATLY appreciated.
