outside Seattle 5 days: San Juans, Victoria Isld or Olympic Nat'l Park?

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are flying into Seattle late Sept 3 and flying out Sept 12. We'd like to explore Seattle at the end of our trip, and get into some nature Sept 4 - 9. We're at a loss whether to explore the San Juan Islands (SJ & Orcas would be our picks) or skip those and take the Clipper to Vancouver Island/Victoria ... or to skip the Islands altogether and explore Olympic National Park and the rainforest. If we go to San Juan Islands we're unsure whether to rent a car -- everything I've read about the long ferry lines is offputting. Are we better off taking the Clipper from Seattle and renting a car on SJI? Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated!
