Itinerary -Seattle, Vancouver San Juan Islands, 7 days in August

Jump to last reply

Trying to work on our itinerary for Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria and the San Juan Islands. I pretty much know what I would like to do at each destination. I've been to all except Vancouver and plan on doing what I missed my last trip 17 years ago.
We plan on landing in Seattle at 1:30 on Saturday August 9th and leave Seattle on Sunday August 17th at 1:10. I will be renting a car in Seattle.
My thought was to first drive up to Vancouver and spend a night or two (or more?). From there I'm open. I don't want to spend a lot of time in Victoria, but my son has never been there and I thought it would be nice for an overnight and possibly go to Butchart Gardens. I guess we would then go to the San Juan Islands (Orca) and do some kayaking with the whales and finish in Seattle (being a priority).
Does this sound do-able with 7 full days? I'm also a bit overwhelmed with all the different options of ferries and could use some help.
Any suggestions or ideas for our route? My son is a big foodie and I'm outdoorsy but just had knee surgery (I should be fine by August). I have made no hotel reservations and was going to figure that out based on what suggestions I get here. In order of priority, Seattle, Vancouver, San Juan Islands then Victoria.
