Experience the spectacular natural beauty and relaxed rural lifestyle of San Juan Island on a Bicycle. This tour is an exclusive excursion - just a day-trip away from Seattle. Fly up to San Juan island in the morning and back to Seattle in the late afternoon.
Available mid-April through September, the package includes a scenic 45-minute seaplane flight between Seattle’s Lake Union and Friday Harbor’s Marina on San Juan Island. You will be flying on Kenmore Air. Kenmore Air, established in 1946, has been flying customers to the San Juan Islands for more the 20 years.
After landing by seaplane in Friday Harbor, board our shuttle for a 20-minute ride to Roche Harbor. There you will be outfitted on one of our new Scott Hybrid bikes. From Roche Harbor you will begin you 3 - 4 hour bike tour. Round trip this tour is about 24 - 30 miles.
It is an island; so of course, the sea air permeates every scene. Even inland, you are never far from the ocean. That means biking conditions are near perfect – almost never above 75 degrees in the summer.
Biking and what you will see
Explore the rural back roads by bike with a naturalist guide. Take in views of family-run farms sprinkled with cows, goats, and sheep. Pass by wooded areas full of birds. Stop for the occasional black tailed deer. You may even see a camel! A stop at the Vineyards for a bit of wine tasting is not out of the question.
A typical bike tour itinerary

What our customers are saying:
We flew out of Seattle, Lake Union, with Kenmore Air to Roche Airport. We found Kenmore very professional and we really enjoyed the flight and the views. Roche Harbor is so picturesque, beautiful. A few minutes walk from the jetty we were at San Juan Outfitters and being fitted out for our bike trip. Wow! Our best day out ever - a beautiful island and a very professional outfit in San Juan to allow us make the most of it.
