Activities come naturally
With eagles soaring overhead, calm waters lapping at the shoreline and Orca whales gliding between islands, it’s no wonder why nature takes center stage at San Juan Passage. Five marinas, twelve miles of beach, pristine fly-fishing lakes and 3,200 acres of protected forest and parks make it easy to enjoy the nearby natural wonders all year long.
A short walk from San Juan Passage takes you to the Washington State Ferry Terminal, where you can tote your bike, kayak, or just walk on board to travel to the San Juan Islands or Sidney and Victoria, B.C. A quick bike ride leads you to 220-acre Washington Park with hiking trails and high-bluff lookouts. Or drive to more than 3,000 acres of city-owned parks and forestland, with beaver ponds, heron roosts, swimming lakes and views atop 1,273-foot Mount Erie.
