Hi Eric,

You might also want to check out Bandito Charters http://www.banditoch...ndito/index.htm They are based in Anacortes, but service Friday Harbor. They have connections there for air fills. I usually launch out of Anacortes and overnight at Friday Harbor.

I have done a couple charters with Kurt and he knows the area well. They have cool hats too.

P.S. Let me know if you need another diver. I am in Portland, but would jump at running up to dive the San Juans. :-)

This is the link for Bandito Charters in The San Juan Islands.
I have not been on their boat in the San Juan's , yet. But, the boats in the South Sound are awesome.

I believe they have taken over the dive shop in Friday Harbor, that is why the website for Island Dive & Water sports is down.....

Hope this helps.

OK. Everyone recommends Bandito. Must be for good reason. :)

I'm slowly piecing together all of the information I need to book a productive and fun few days up there.

Thank you, everyone, for all the information!
