We traveled between Seattle-Friday Harbor-Victoria and Vancouver via the Victoria Clipper which offers tour packages throughout the area. Its a great company, attention to detail and perfectly planned travel. Friday Harbor was very quiet and relaxing. People go there mostly for bicycling and canoeing. We went whale watching. We didn't see any whales but did see a lot of eagles among the islands. The best dinner we had on our vacation was at a small cafe there. Friday Harbor is a great place to stay, relax and enjoy nature.
