Samish Island is part of the San Juan islands 'Banana Belt', which means we get substantially less rainfall and more sunshine than inland. This allows for year round outdoor activities including Beach combing, Bicycling, Kayaking, and Hiking. Enjoy the island life without the expense of a ferry!

Located half way between the exciting cities of Seattle and Vancouver BC (an hour drive from the border.)The island is also just a short distance from beautiful Chuckanut drive and the coastal towns of Anacortes, Edison, Fairhaven and La Conner. Wonderful dining and shopping experiences await you at each stop.

Every season offers something new to see and do. When you book your reservation we will be sure to let you know about up-coming events and attractions in the area.
