The Anacortes–San Juan Islands ferry routes are operated by Washington State Ferries. The routes serve Lopez Island, Shaw Island, Orcas Island, San Juan Island, and Vancouver Island.[1]

The routes follow Coast Salish canoe routes[citation needed] from Anacortes, on Fidalgo Island, across Rosario Strait, and through Thatcher Pass. In the fall and winter, the water becomes very rough on Rosario Strait, often resulting in canceled runs.

During summer months, the routes are served by five vessels, three for domestic travel to the islands, one for inter island travel between the islands, and one for international travel between Anacortes and Sidney BC (Vancouver Island).[2]

The main vessels on the Anacortes–San Juan Islands routes are:
