The island averages only about half as much yearly rainfall as Seattle. San Juan also sees the sun an average of 247 days a year, something unheard of in the rest of the Pacific Northwest. There is so much more to San Juan Island than fantastic weather, though. San Juan Island is an enchanting place where gentle breezes push the smell of sea air across fields of lavender and alfalfa; orca whales splash through sparkling seas just over the bluff from your unbelievably beautiful picnic site; majestic bald eagles soar through unparalleled sunsets and your Jacuzzi suite waits to soothe you. The pace of life is different here, and San Juan Island is a place you will return to again and again.
Spend a day hiking, whale watching, biking, kayaking, exploring or just relaxing on a nearly deserted beach.
