Yesterday I had the chance to visit with former student Capt. Bill McGown, owner of Leap Frog Water Taxi.
Leap Frog is based at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal a transportation hub for the Alaska ferry, Amtrak, Greyhound, Airporter Shuttle and the Whatcom Transportation Authority. We are uniquely located less than two hours travel time to most destinations in the San Juan Islands.
Bill was quick to point out that Bellingham is actually a shorter run from Seattle than is Anacortes, because you run I5 instead of taking a state highway with number lights and stops.
Leap Frog has the ability to get there fast, averaging 20 kts.
Be sure to call Capt. McGown next time you need to get to or from Whatcom County and the San Juans.
