cell phones  (1 Answer)

I will be moving to San Juan by the end of August, and i am curious how the cell phone situation is going to go. Im a very inexperienced travler moving from New Hampshire on a short notice. Any info at all that anyone can tell me would be extremely helpful. Im 32 single female is clueless! In NH is very common not to have a landline phone at all anymore. We use our cell phones for everything! Calls,texting and the internet on a constant basis. What am i to expect in a few weeks when I arrive? Help!
Thank you,
Karie from NH

Passenger Ferry to San Juan Islands

My husband and I would like to do a day trip to the San Juan islands this weekend, which islands downtown including restaurants, museums etc. are within walking distance from the ferry terminal? Which island has the most to do? Any suggestions for whale watching from the shore in September? Any other suggestions for two people that are on foot in the San Juan Islands?
thanks for your help!

Whale Watching Recommendations  (3 Answers)

My husband & I will be doing a day trip from Seattle and want to make the experience as unique as possible. We are young and in good shape. I am considering doing a day sea kayaking/whale watching trip or doing a zodiac boat trip (my understanding is that these are only out of Victoria?). We are not really interested in going on a big boat and are hoping to find a way to do this that truly makes the experience feel special as opposed to feeling like we're in a zoo with 100s of other tourists. Would you recommend the zodiac trip or sea kayaking and could you give me some recommendations for tour operators?

where to stay  (7 Answers)

Where should we stay on San Juan Island in early July. We want to see the fireworks at Roche Harour on the 4th of July, but Friday Harbour sounds convenient. We are a family with 3 kids age 10months to 7 yrs so a place with a pool near a beach would be good any suggestions We will have a car
Any suggestions??

Honeymooning in the San Juan Islands  (1 Answer)

My husband and I will be honeymooning in the San Juan Island in late April of this year. With the travel arrangements made, it seems a little silly to be asking the following questions but I am curious ...

What can we expect as far as weather is concerned? I have looked up the averages, etc. on a mess of websites but am wondering if someone local to the area can give me a less scientific description.

Any thoughts about the Place at Cayou Cove? Our reservations are made but we have another week during which we have the opportunity to change our accomodations if needed. I have heard rave web and travel guide reviews but was wondering if anyone here has been there personally.

Restaurant recommendations? We have always try to stick with the local's choices versus what the travle guides say and have been rewarded greatly for this decision.

Thanks so much to anyone that can offer any info!

Can anyone recommend a place to stay on the San Juan Islands? How did you get there from Sea-Tac? What month did you visit? What was the weather like? How is the ferry system? I hope to hear from people who live there since I'm planning to
relocate. I hope visit in fall 2005. Thanks
