Kenmore Air received more than 2,300 entries in its "Vote for your favorite Island" promotion, and the winner again this year is Orcas Island.
The airline congratulates everyone that voted for "The Emerald Isle" - a winning combination of stunning shorelines, the highest mountain in the San Juan Islands and a handful of charming hamlets.
What this means is you now have four days - August 7, 8, 9 and 10 - to book your $69 seats for travel between Seattle and Orcas Island September 23, 2013 through March 31, 2014 (excluding November 27 through December 3, 2013 and December 2013 through Januardy 2, 2014).
That's about half of the regular price.
Tickets are available for any scheduled seaplane flight between Seattle's Lake Union or Lake Washington and Deer Harbor, Rosario Resort or West Sound; or on Kenmore's daily scheduled Express wheeled aircraft flights between Boeing Field and Eastsound airport.
