Stay Another Night
Before computers and jets, this region was about the sea, timber, agriculture, and farming. Visiting Whidbey and Camano Islands gives travelers the chance to experience that slower pace.
You can visit unspoiled beaches, farms, wineries, and stay in unique lodging that enhances the experience.
On Whidbey and Camano Islands, we call ourselves, “The Shortest Distance to Far Away©.” But, how do you get here?
Depending upon traffic, the ferry to Whidbey Island is about an hour’s drive from Sea-Tac Airport. Getting to Camano takes about 90 minutes, but there’s no ferry. Both drives are mostly straight shots up I-5 through Seattle.
Your options include shuttle busses, car rentals (including waiting to get to the island to rent) and public transit.
Options for getting to Whidbey Island
This is a Whidbey Islanders’, “insider super secret!”
Departing from Sea-Tac’s gate 2 south of the baggage carousels, the shuttle offers stress-free transportation to eight locations on Whidbey Island, including car rentals (if you ask in advance). Check with your lodging to find options to get to where you’re staying.
