Guest Info & Directions
GETTING TO ORCAS ISLAND
Your vacation begins the moment you board the
Washington State Ferry. Sit back, relax and adjust to “island time” as you enjoy your cruise through emerald isles on blue seas. The San Juan Islands ferries depart several times each day from Anacortes, Washington, and serve the following four islands: Lopez, Orcas, Shaw and San Juan, as well as Sidney, B.C., Canada. Fares to the San Juan Islands include a round trip. To get to Anacortes from Seattle drive approximately one hour north on Interstate 5 to Exit 230, follow Highway 20 west to Anacortes (for an additional thirty minutes), follow Commercial Avenue north, take a left on 12th St., then continue west forapproximately two miles to the Anacortes ferry terminal. The Washington State Ferry offers ferry service for cars, bikes, and walk-on passengers from Anacortes. The ferry ride is around one hour from Anacortes to Orcas Island. Be sure to make reservations and arrive 45-60 minutes early.
You can take Kenmore Air and land right in West Sound Bay (5 minutes from the house) or land in the village of Eastsound. Kenmore Air has partnered with Alaska Airlines and accepts airline miles for both. Another beautiful way to get to Orcas Island!
There is a shuttle from the Seattle Airport to the ferry landing at Anacortes called Bel-Air Shuttle
DIRECTIONS BLUE HERON
When you arrive in Orcas, exit left from the ferry on Orcas Road. Drive 2.4 miles and at the first four way intersection, turn left at Deer Harbor Road. Be sure to look for the Deer Harbor road sign. After turning, continue until you pass Crow Valley Road (about 1 mile). We are the third building on the right. Look for the Blue Heron sign and turn into the driveway. We are about 7 minutes from the ferry.

“Our room (The Pelican) was very spacious and comfortable."
“Best place to stay on Orcas! I can't recommend this beautiful B&B enough... and the room was GORGEOUS! And the view from our balcony??? PERFECT!
