Making a Day of It: Seattle to Port Angeles & Black Ball Ferry

Jump to last reply

So this trip to Victoria and then Vancouver, we are thinking about taking the ferry out of Port Angeles as something new. If we do, we'll make a day out of the trip there, beginning from a SeaTac hotel on a Sunday morning and maybe catching the 5:20pm ferry. Can you all help out with some suggestions for filling the day on the peninsula?

It will be in mid-late September, so first of all, are there any lavender farms still blooming? And is there time to go up on Hurricane Ridge? Maybe a neat place for lunch (seafood most welcome, though not sushi).

As background, the vacation goes something like this:

- Fly from Florida to Albuquerque, spend a week in Durango & a couple days in New Mexico.
- Fly from there into Seattle (arrive evening) and stay at an airport hotel
- Take the Port Angeles ferry into Victoria for 2 nights
- Take ferry either into Horseshoe Bay or Tsawwassen into Vancouver for 5 nights
- Last night at SeaTac airport hotel for early morning return home

Wanted to avoid driving across the border this time, hoping to make this a good look-see for a longer visit to that part of Olympic peninsula. Went to Forks area last year but concentrated on that area.

Thanks!
