Default Seattle area islands vacation request

We are looking to go to San Juan islands, orca islands or others areas nearby for week of June 13th

Looking online, but wanted to see if anyone on tbh had experience with a good place to rent and good fishing charters

Thx

I’ve been to Whidbey Island, it’s beautiful country and will go again. We stayed with a friend and didn’t fish but when I go back I plan to, sorry not much help.

I fish everywhere I go. If you are going to visit the Olympic Peninsula while there and pack your own gear, I can help you to the point R square equals 1. Send me a PM

We spent a few days at a VRBO on Vashon Island last time we went.
We had a blast- not a ton to do there except relax but that is what we went for. Wife loved the beach with all of the sea glass.

Heading up to Seattle for a week in May to visit my daughter. I’m going to have to check on fishing while I’m there.

Vancouver Island is awesome. They city of Vancouver was cool too. Very clean, no fast food and hot women everywhere.

I lived up there for most of the 2000ís. There is a bit of variety from island to island depending on what you want to do. Are you looking for more of a small town type environment with shops and restaurants or something more off the beaten path? Is fishing the primary reason for going or something you are just working in since you are there? You thinking about trolling for Salmon, river fishing or both? Lots of options.
