Getting to Friday Harbor Laboratories
By Car and Ferry to Friday Harbor
Most attendees travel to the FHL by car and ferry. All ferry service leaves from Anacortes, Washington, approximately 17 miles/ 27 km west of Interstate 5. Driving time from Seattle to Anacortes (80 miles) is about 90 minutes and from Vancouver to Anacortes (150 km) is about two hours. Ferry spots are limited, so reservations are recommended.
Parking is available at the Anacortes ferry terminal, and many attendees leave their vehicles and walk on the ferry. If you choose this option, plan to arrive about 30 minutes early. The distance from town to the FHL is ~ 1.5 miles and walkable (20 min).
From SeaTac Airport in Seattle to Friday Harbor
Kenmore Airlines offers flights from Boeing Field or Lake Union near downtown Seattle, to the Friday Harbor Airport or Marina for about $4000 round trip. For those with flights arriving at Seattle's SeaTac airport, Kenmore Air has a ground transportation option to connect with their flights.
