You could spend your entire cruise
…just visiting the Washington State Parks within the San Juans. They are honestly all a little different than each other. We will do our best to explain what you can find there, but really you’ll just have to visit them all and determine which one is your favorite!
Sucia is a magical place. The layout of the islands is very unique. Beautiful views in every direction, plenty of hiking to satisfy your curious feet.
Matia Island is up near Sucia on the Strait of Georgia. The 5-acres at Rolfe Cove are available to boaters as a marine park.
Moran State Park
*On Orcas Island, closest destination is Rosario or Eastsound. Home of Mount Constitution, the tallest point (elev. 2,409 ft.) in the San Juans.
Reid Harbor is on the west side, Prevost Harbor on the East. They both have a dock and they both have mooring bouys. There are all kinds of secrets and wonders on Stuart Island. From Lighthouses to nature walks… it is a great Island to explore.
The heart of the San Juan Islands…
Just outside and south of Friday Harbor, it might be the easiest Island to get to, although there are only mooring buoys, no dock.
If you are trailering, this is your gateway to the islands. Make sure you check the tides for departure and arrival, either direction is inadvisable at low tide. (Not a state park, we included it anyway!)
