How to Get to Friday Harbor Washington

We will meet you at our shop in downtown Friday Harbor so all you have to do is get here! The most common ways to get to Friday Harbor from the Seattle area are:

Make a reservation if you plan on bringing your vehicle to the islands. Reservations are not required if you plan on leaving your car in Anacortes and "walking on" the ferry.
