TRIP ITINERARY

Day 1 - Cycle San Juan Island's Interior and Hike Mount Grant

We will meet you at our shop in Friday Harbor located at 40 Spring Street, just steps from the ferry terminal and shuttle the group to our starting point, just outside of downtown. After we gear up and have a safety lesson, we head out along San Juan Valley Road. Here you get a sense of our farming community cycling past farmhouses and fields of sheep and cattle. We then head onto forested roads that lead us to the base of Mount Grant Preserve -San Juan Island's newest hiking destination. Here we will hike through a Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar forest to the summit where you can enjoy expansive views of the San Juan Islands, Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, and Mount Rainier. If the group is small, your guide will prepare lunch at the summit, otherwise you can enjoy lunch at the base before heading back out onto the road.

This afternoon we will cycle along the interior of the island past Egg Lake where you can jump in for a swim if the weather is right. We then head onward to Roche Harbor Road, leading us past Lakedale, Egg Lake and San Juan Vineyards where you can stop for a tasting of our local wines.

Day 2 - Cycle San Juan Island's South End

Today's route begins cycling San Juan Valley past False Bay with the Olympic Mountains in the background. False Bay turns into a massive exposed intertidal zone at low tide, perfect for exploring the tide pools or digging your toes into the mud. This quiet country road has idyllic vistas of the Haro Strait and working farmland.

From False Bay, we will cycle towards American Camp which is a National Historic Park. Here at you can hike or bike through fields looking for fox, rabbits, and bald eagles or trek down to one of the small coves found along the way.

Afterwards, we cycle north visiting the largest Alpaca Farm on San Juan Island. We then cycle on to Roche Harbor for an afternoon coffee or ice cream and to walk the docks of its beautiful marina. Roche Harbor is a quaint village with artist kiosks to check out, English gardens to explore, a sculpture park to walk through, and a very unique mausoleum for the adventurous.

Before heading back toward town, explore the scenic roads of White Point. This route will take you past Westcott Bay along a narrow country road to the shores of Westcott Bay Shellfish Co where you can sample island oysters and have a cold beverage. We will also stop at a Gin Distillery where you can enjoy a tasting. From here you may choose to get a ride in our shuttle or keep cycling back to Friday Harbor.



Day 4 - Kayak or Whale Watch Cruise

This morning we will either shuttle you to the beautiful Westside of San Juan Island for a day of sea kayaking or you may choose to go on a whale watch wildlife cruise aboard the Odyssey.

The day of kayaking includes a kayak safety lesson before you begin paddling along the evergreen cloaked coastline. As we journey down the coast, we'll stop for lunch along a beach where you can search for creatures in the tide pools, look for sea glass among the pebbles or simply soak in the scenery. After lunch we will head back out on the water in search of orcas and eagles.

If you choose the whale watch cruise, you will spend the afternoon cruising the San Juan Islands. Sit back and relax in comfort as the personable onboard naturalists share their depth of knowledge on the local whales and wildlife. A picnic lunch prepared by your guide will be served while you are on the boat. Afterwards, your guide will bring you back to Friday Harbor. Tonight, you will have time to explore town on your own.
