Point of Interest
“People always ask, "where is the best place for seafood?" Well, the answer is complicated...the once pristine Salish Sea is not as healthy as it used to be (pollution is at hazardous levels) and overfishing has taken its toll. That "wild" salmon featured in restaurants and stores is probably from Alaska. Farmed shellfish however is happening at Buck Bay. Oysters are a favorite. Eat in or take home. ”
“You haven't done Orcas unless you've hiked or driven up to the tower and seen the breathtaking views of the San Juans, Mount Baker and Canada. Also check out Mountain Lake and a waterfall or two.”
“If you like craft beer, check out Island Hoppin’ Brewery where you can play board games, eat peanuts and mingle with locals.”
Health Food Store
“Orcas Food Coop is a health food store with great seafood and organic produce. It is across the street from Island Market”
“This place is a real gem!! You must go, even if you have no intention of buying any pottery. The location is beautiful, their treehouse is cool, and the way they display their pottery in their yard is whimsical and fun. ”
