  1. Guemes Island Ferry

    (360) 293-6356
    500 I Ave
    Map & Directions

    The Guemes Island Ferry departs from a small dock in Anacortes and is a quick 5-minute ride over to Fidalgo’s neighboring island of Guemes. Made up of mostly residential homes, Guemes is home to Anderson’s General Store where you could pick up a few supplies if staying on the island or grab lunch before hitting the beach for some sea glass hunting.


  2. Washington State Ferry

    2100 Ferry Terminal Rd
    Map & Directions

    The WA State Ferry that leaves from Anacortes provides access to San Juan Island/Friday Harbor, Orcas Island, Lopez Island, Shaw Island, and to Sidney B.C. There is parking at the ferry terminal for a daily fee, but the only island that we would suggest walking onto the ferry would be San Juan; the town of Friday Harbor is home to many shops, restaurants and lodging just steps off the ferry.  For all other islands, we suggest driving your car on that way you can get around and explore.
