20 minute ferry from West Seattle, or 15 minute ferry from North Tacoma

Way easier than San Juan ferry system. No reservations, ferries sail about every hour, 7 days a week. Holidays have fewer sailings


Adventurous and charming

You may also rent other tents to set up in the large field to make a glamping village

Rentals, completely furnished, set up & taken down; Each tent accommodates various bed configurations based on client wishes:  4 twin beds, 2 queens or 1 king; serving Vashon would be relatively easy for them, as they’re based in Portland, Oregon and are accustomed to doing events in the San Juan Island


Private Onsite Class

Vashon is a mecca for yoga. The island boasts many qualified teachers who have traveled the world refining their practice. Learn from them onsite at Foxglove Lodge, as they are amenable to house calls to lead groups.
