San Juan Island Tour with Seaplane Flight from Seattle

13 reviews
Fly from Seattle to Friday Harbor on a 6-passenger seaplane, and enjoy spectacular aerial views of the San Juan Islands. Flying over the San Jan Islands is a great way to take in the scale of the hundreds of islands, coves, and remote beaches that line the Washington coast, and you’ll touch down in the charming island town of Friday Harbor, which is linked to the mainland by ferry.

We’ve been coming here for years and just love it! Great walking path with ducks, turtles, geese, and sometimes rabbits.

This park is busy even at its slowest, while a nice enough place to enjoy lunch, the restrooms have been locked since winter, no place for sanitation so you know where people are going! Not cool, if you are going to allow huge crowds even during Covid you need to clean the place up and provide for sanitation. If you want to play tennis or volleyball be prepared to wait, whoever is on the court stays on the court until they are tired, no one follows the signs to release the court after one hour. More courts need to be built. No one and I mean no one follows the no dogs on the beach and they leave things on the beach too. Just know before you go!

We live close enough to walk to this park. We ordered food online and as soon as we walked toward the park with our small leashes dog, animal control was sitting there giving us some speAch about a $250 fine. Completely ridiculous. We pay taxes for Renton, we are responsible dog owners who pick up after our dog. There are so many worse things going on in the world right now than a dog in a park. Unfreaking believable.

Because I was staying at the nearby Hyatt Regency Lake Washington, I (and anyone else there) had smooth access to the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park, just steps away from the hotel’s refined facade. The park is simply gorgeous. It winds from the southern tip of Lake Washington (i.e. where the hotel is) all the way up the eastern shore of the lake, and a walking trail continues further into the Bellevue area. The park may appear quite small, but the length of it is really impressive and offers spectacular views (many views) of the pristine Pacific Northwest terrain. Amenities for visitors include free parking, restroom stations, docks for boats and fishing, picnic tables, playgrounds, and two small eateries; do note that during COVID-19, these spaces were closed off (except some restrooms, parking, and docks). Plan accordingly when you travel during the virus...the park is excellent for practicing social distancing, but just don’t get your hopes up with anything else than walking on trails! With the great location and magnitude of natural wonders, I highly encourage folks to make a stop at the Gene Coulon Beach Park when in the Seattle area. No need to spend all day, but make sure you get as much out of it as you can. Check it out!

Gene Coulon park is located close to Boeing in Renton. It has a wonderful trail that any arborist would love and is a fun place to exercise. There is a wonderful playground for young children with swings, slides, climbing forts, etc. In the summer you can rent paddle boats, canoes, or you can sunbathe on the beach or swim. The sunset is truly remarkable over Lake Washington. If you get hungry, there are two restaurants right in the park: Kid Valley and Ivars Seafood Bar. When you finish your day, the movie theatre and shopping exerience are just a short distance away. Fun for the whole family, a couple, or a single person. View the fireworks on the fourth of July or see the Christmas lights - it's a wonderful experience whenever you go. But go early if going in the summer, as parking is limited.
