THINGS TO DO
Watch a sunset or sunrise from the highest point in the San Juan Islands: the tower at the top of Mt. Constitution in Moran State Park.
Get out on the water with a guided kayak tour or go on a whale watch tour.
Rent a rowboat or kayak from us and row or paddle to Freeman Island or Pt Doughty.
Go for a bike ride. Didn’t bring your bike? You can rent one from Wildlife Cycles in Eastsound. From there you can ride to our local brewery, Island Hoppin’ Brewery or enjoy some of the singletrack available at Moran State Park.
Take a water taxi to Sucia or Patos and spend the day hiking or just relaxing. Summer only.
Go for a hike. Head to the south entrance of Turtleback Mountain Preserve and hike up to the West Overlook to enjoy a sunset picnic. (Bring a headlamp and/or flashlights.)
Biplane ride with Rod. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity and you’ll get to experience the islands in a way that can only be done by air. April-Oct, weather permitting.
