2018 Pre-Conference Media Trip 
Anacortes, Washington - USA
May 2018

Two IFWTWA members enjoyed two nights and three days on Fidalgo Island, home of the historic city of Anacortes. Anacortes is located in the Pacific Northwest. It is conveniently situated halfway between Seattle and Vancouver BC and is the destination point for the San Juans and International ferry runs for Washington State. Group activities included First Friday Art walk, regional food, drink, and an insider’s perspective into this working maritime town. A guided kayak trip was a highlight for many along with a jet-boat ride around beautiful Deception Pass.
