We generally stop at different islands each day and provide plenty of opportunity to get off and walk/hike and explore. There are many islands with wonderful trails with a variety of hiking difficulty. We have a sea kayak on board that you can use to explore the bays we visit. We also have equipment to crab or fish, when in season, from our Zodiac-style inflatable. We always stop mid-week at Friday Harbor to reprovision. This gives you an opportunity to browse, visit the Whale Museum, shops and art galleries. On some islands you may swim in mountain lakes or enjoy resort pools, mineral springs & hot tubs, rent bicycles, mopeds, or even go scuba diving.
