Seattle, Victoria, San Juan itinerary - suggestions please!

Jump to last reply

My family is going to the Seattle area this summer - my husband and I along with our two teenagers. We all love outdoors - hiking, kayaking, etc. but also want to do some city activities. I'm still trying to decide exactly how many days so I'm working on a sample itinerary.

My biggest concern is the ferry times (I see a lot of this on these forums). Any suggestions or major changes I should make?

Day 1 - Fly into Seattle - explore as time permits (hotel Seattle)
Day 2 - Explore Seattle (hotel Seattle)
Day 3 - Drive to Anacortes and ferry to San Juan Islands (explore island) (hotel on San Juan or Orcas?)
Day 4 - Explore island (kayak or whale-watching) (hotel on San Juan or Orcas)
Day 5 - Ferry to Sidney/Victoria (hotel Victoria)
Day 6 - Explore Victoria (hotel Victoria)
Day 7 - Ferry to Friday Harbor, Ferry to Anacortes (Deception Pass/Whidbey island) (hotel near Anacortes) - is this doable? is there an option to take the ferry from Sidney directly to Anacortes?
Day 8 - Ferry Coupeville to Port Townsend - Explore Port Townsend, drive to Port Angeles/Olympic National Park (hotel Port Angeles)
Day 9 - ONP (hotel Port Angeles or possibly Forks)
Day 10 - ONP - Drive back to Seattle (ferry Bainbridge to Seattle)
Day 11 - (explore Seattle if time permits) Fly home

Thanks for any suggestions!

Kim
