ROCHE HARBOR, Wash. — Evening from the San Juan Islands for our Special Edition of Cruising the San Juans! FEATURING: Roche Harbor Experience, Stuart Island, San Juan Shrimping, Jafa Orcas Island, Kenmore Lopez Island Eats, BNWE 2019: Hilltop Treehouse Retreat, and BNWE 2018: Bed and Breakfast - The Wharfside.


One of the best marinas on the West Coast is in Washington - It was once known for having the largest limestone deposits on the West Coast. Today, Roche Harbor is a reflection of a different natural resource... the pristine waters of the San Juan Islands.

Explore the San Juan Island that has a population of 20 - No ferry will get you to Stuart Island on the San Juans. To reach this pristine place, you're going to need a boat.

Try catching your own shrimp in the San Juan Islands - A trip to the San Juan Islands is not complete without experiencing some of the freshest seafood the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Just off Roche Harbor on San Juan Island, you can catch your own shrimp.

Whale watching isn't the only reason to head to Orcas Island - People come from around the world to whale watch here -- but here's what to do, what to eat, and where to stay on the San Juans' largest island.

Eating your way around Lopez Island - Experience all the island has to offer with fresh oysters, baked goods, and award-winning wine. With a short 40 minute flight on Kenmore Air from Seattle to Lopez Island, there's not a lot of time to build up an appetite. But if you come hungry to this jewel in the San Juan's, there's plenty to sink your teeth into. 

Sleep in the trees at this Lopez Island retreat - If your childhood dream of owning a treehouse never came true, you can rent the reality on Lopez Island. Built originally as a writing retreat by owners Bob and his wife Sean, the Hilltop Treehouse has become one of the most sought-after destinations on Airbnb.

The San Juan Island bed and breakfast that also happens to be a boat - The Wharfside is a one-of-a-kind B&B that's guaranteed to float your boat. Today the Wharfside Bed and Breakfast gets visited by guests from around the world and is tied fast to the docks at the Friday Harbor Marina.
