The Pacific Northwest is has so much to offer, among its greatest treasures of this region are the islands of Washington (the San Juan islands). While cruising the islands, beautiful vistas surround you, including the white pyramid of Mount Baker standing at the edge of the continent. Eagles carve circles in the sky above. Orca whales and porpoises feed and play in the lush water below.

This legendary archipelago was a gift of the glaciers that covered Washington 15,000 years ago. It is a refuge for some of the world's most rare and regal species, for humans who seek a respite from their life on land and for artists who find inspiration here. Galleries, vineyards and fine restaurants coexist with some of the best canoeing and kayaking waters along the Pacific Coast.

The Island region includes Whidbey Island, Camano Island, Fidalgo Island and the San Juan Islands. Many islands and islets make up the San Juan Islands, but it's the four main islands, Lopez, Shaw, Orcas and San Juan, that are accessible to visitors.
