DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Take I-5 approximately 90 miles from either Seattle or Vancouver, BC, to the Washington States Ferries terminal in Anacortes. Tell the ticket agent you are going to San Juan Island and she will guide you to the correct lane. The beautiful one- to two-hour ferry ride will take you through the breathtaking San Juan archipelago.  There will be an announcement when the boat arrives at  Friday Harbor. Follow the other cars (right) off the ferry, then left onto Spring Street, Friday Harbor’s main commercial street. SJIMA is approximately half a mile up Spring St., on the right. You really can’t miss it!
