We depart Anacortes for the isolated cove of Eagle Harbor on Cypress Island. For the adventurous we recommend the intermediate hike to the enticing elevated heights of Eagle Cliff where one can enjoy the panoramic views of the San Juan archipelago. Less rigorous hikes are optional. This harbor offers phenomenal views of the sun rising over Mount Baker in the Cascade mountain range.
Depart Cypress after breakfast and sail for isolated Sucia Island. This glacially carved paradise offers myriad outdoor activities: kayak along tidal hollowed cliffs overhung by red-barked Madronas, hike a sophisticated network of trails leading to scenic coves and vistas, enjoy a campfire on the beach as the sunset tints the coastal San Juan Islands mountain range of Vancouver Island. Sucia’s magic could engulf an entire vacation.
