A Visitors Guide to Yachting the San Juan Islands of Washington State

By Michael Buczek

One of the best ways to take in the beauty of these islands can be through a luxury yacht charter. Yachting is fast becoming a preferred method of luxury travel in coastal waterways and even for open ocean voyages. One of the most preferred places to travel by yacht in the United States is the San Juan Islands of Washington State.

The San Juan Islands of Washington State are part of a much larger archipelago that includes the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. This island chain is made up of more than 700 individual islands. The San Juan Islands are made up of Orcas Island, Lopez Island and San Juan Island. These islands have over 200 days of sunshine each year and receive much less rain than Seattle. Lopez Island is the flattest of the islands which makes it perfect for cycling, kayaking or just lying on the beach and beachcombing. Orcas Island is the largest of the group and offers great galleries, lush forests, mountain peaks, pristine lakes and many small villages and towns to explore. San Juan Island is the most diverse of the three offering sandy beaches as well as rocky shores. Be sure to check out the whale museum and experience the Orca whale pods on the west side of the island from about April until late September. The beauty and mystique of this island chain can be enjoyed all year long. Each island offers a unique experience to all who travel to them. By taking a chartered yacht, you can enjoy the beauty and charm that each island has to offer.

A chartered yacht can offer you luxury and convenience as you travel the islands. Many companies can provide the captain and crew to make your voyage spectacular. When planning voyage, a good idea is to check if a chef is provided or if you need to bring your own. Many times a chef is provided that can meet the needs of your culinary tastes. Other tips to making your trip spectacular when booking include, knowing how many people will be going with you on this excursion. You can sometimes save money by having more people share a cabin and bathroom on your voyage. By doing this you will still have all the fun, but you may save some money in the long run. Another thing to remember is that the more amenities you add to the trip, like extra crew members, the more the price will go up.

Now is the time to book your chartered yacht tour. A yacht vacation can be very luxurious and the vacation that you have been dreaming of. So the next time you are thinking of a vacation think about a chartered yacht and visit the majestic San Juan Islands.
