Friday Harbor and Jones Island

  • Aboard the National Geographic Venture
  • Pacific Northwest

Our second day in the San Juan Islands of Washington was spent exploring the second largest, and most populated island, in the San Juan Island Archipelago. About 8,000 people inhabit this island, and 2,200 of them live in the only incorporated town in the all-island county of around 16,000 full time residents. Our morning options were touring the island by bus, visiting a farm, exploring town, and the Whale Museum. After lunch, we left the town behind and motored just a few miles to the north, anchoring at Jones Island, where we explored the uninhabited state marine park by foot or Zodiac tour.
