How to get there
Directions to Dancing Deer:
From Seattle drive N. on Interstate 5 approximately 65 miles from downtown Seattle (approx. 80 miles from Seatac Airport) to exit 230, then Highway 20 west to Anacortes Ferry Terminal. Total time from Seatac airport 2 to 2 1/2 hours traffic-dependent.

ws dot gov dot wa/ferry/saveaspot for details on the ferry reservation system. We recommend allowing plenty of time to get to the ferry (especially if flying into Seatac allow for delays, luggage and rental car pick up etc). As only 10% of the boat is for passengers without reservations, missing a reservation could mean quite a wait. You are welcome to call us for further advice on this is you wish.

There are good restaurants at both terminals. The ferry ride is about an hour and the drive from the Orcas ferry...
