Boathouse rental cabin on Orcas Island, Washington State. One of my absolute favorite "get away" spots in the world! If you don't own a cabin or "water" vacation home - this is the place to go in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, where you can "island hop" via Island Ferries.
San Juan Islands map w/ cetacean ranges. Ferry riders has the opportunity to see many types of wildlife-minke whales are pretty common sight but much more shy than the spectacular orcas, which typically range close to the San Juan Islands.
