seaplane leaving from rosario resort

I hope you add the special excursion to Rosario Resort to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of PAPS. Some people may wish to check out of the Marriott, take your luggage with you on the Victoria Clipper, and stay overnight at Rosario instead of coming back to Seattle on the Clipper...If you do that, the way back to Seattle s truly spectacular and we have arranged a 10% discount with Kenmore Air Seaplanes.

Guess what, you're in for a treat! Kenmore air has several flights each and every day right from the Rosario Resort less than 100 feet from your hotel room. and back to Seattle. Seattle is only 30-40 minutes away by Sea Plane with spectacular views of the San Juan Islands, the Olympic Mountains, and the City of Seattle. They land in Lake Union in the heart of Seattle just below the Space Needle. From there, they will shuttle you to Sea-Tac airport if you want. Reservations are made by calling Emily at Kenmore Air for a special PAPS 10% discount at 425.482.2211 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Browse their website at kenmore.com to learn about their flights and luggage restrictions (leave big unneeded baggage at Marriott).. Special private charter flights can be arranged if we have enough interested people.

If taking a seaplane is not your thing but you still want to stay in Rosario, no worries! There are ferry rides from Orcas to the other San Juan Islands or back to Seattle.
