Directions: To The Island Inn
Getting to Friday Harbor from wherever you are is part of the fun and our Inn is super easy to get to once you make it to San Juan Island. No car? No worries. You'll be able to get around the Island easily without one, especially in the summer.
You'll see us as soon as the captain lets you know your next stop is Friday Harbor. As you disembark the ferry by vehicle, foot or bicycle, follow the flow of traffic to the right. Stay to the right through the roundabout (most everyone else will go left) and look for the large water tank with the 1-2-3 sign painted on. We'll be on Front Street next to the entry to our by-reservation parking garage excited to meet you.
By float plane
You'll totally see us from the sky! Stroll up the docks toward land after splashing inn. When you make it to the Port of Friday Harbor offices, follow the sidewalk to the left. You'll see our Inn and large water tank with a 1-2-3 painted on to your right. We'll meet you on Front Street next to the entry to our by-reservation parking garage.
By wheels plane
Westwind Aviation, Kenmore Air and Northwest Sky Ferry all land at the same strip. Though you can walk down to the inn from the airport, the trek is several blocks so we recommend you line up some sort of help. We're happy to arrange a ride for you or scoop you up ourselves - just ask.
Getting around without bringing your car
