Are you going to be renting a car or not? You could rent a car and drive to the WS ferry in Anacortes and then have that car to use for your whole trip. Or you could get to the ferry landing via the Airporter shuttle and then either rent a car here from M&W auto on SJ island or use the SJ shuttle van http://www.sanjuantransit.com/schedules.html in the summer months to get to most of the places of interest .
If you don't drive a car to Anacortes then you can get to the ferry from Sea-Tac airport via the Airporter Shuttle which has daily round-trip service between downtown Seattle with three stops in Anacortes as can be seen online by looking at their schedule at airporter.com/schedules/…ana They leave SeaTac and stop to get more passengers in downtown Seattle and arrive at Anacortes many times in a day. This shuttle bus does make multiple stops and involves a brief transfer to a connecting bus to get to the small Anacortes 'shell' stop in town. You'll need reservations which you can make at the mentioned web site or calling 866-235-5247
If you do rent a car and drive to Anacortes here is a lot of information in detail about the Anacortes ferry terminal and how to get to the ferry landing in Anacortes if you have a car as well as webcams showing you the current car holding lot (and a nice new feature which shows the actual amount of spaces left per vessel sailing for vehicles )is at: …wa.gov/ferries/…
Thanks for all the information -- very, very helpful
