Vendovi Island Preserve Cruise, Nature Walk & Picnic Lunch

Remote and pristine Vendovi Island, one of the largest private islands in the San Juan archipelago is now accessible to the public. Of the island’s 217 acres, only 2 have ever been developed – as such Vendovi is largely intact. The islands six unspoiled beaches, rare prairie habitat, abundant forest and wildlife, and an interesting history make Vendovi a very special place that few visitors have had the opportunity to appreciate.

Thanks to the San Juan Preservation Trust which purchased and now protects this unique and special island, the public now has the opportunity to experience the blooms of camas, paintbrush, fawn lilies and other wildflowers this spring and summer and discover the island’s remarkable charms.

You will enjoy a one hour guided nature walk, where you’ll take in beaches, rare prairie habitat, plentiful wildlife, and beautiful forests, while hearing about the interesting history of the island along the way.

Included is a delicious picnic lunch, freshly prepared daily by our crew, and packed into an insulated tote that you get to keep after the cruise! You may choose to have lunch near the dock, take it to a beach, or stroll along one of many trails on the island to find a special spot of your own.

Join San Juan Cruises this summer aboard one of our 7 public tours for 2018.
