Island Air Ambulance

Island Air Ambulance is a service of Island Air, a local company which has been providing aviation services to San Juan County for over 25 years.  Island Air recently created the Air Ambulance Membership Program as an affordable way for island residents and visitors to be sheltered from out-of-pocket costs that could be incurred from the flight portion of an emergency medical transport on one of their fixed-wing, air ambulance aircraft.  If you would like more information, please see their website at www.islandairambulance.com, call 360-378-2376 or email membership@islandairambulance.com

Bikes for free use (donations encouraged)

  • We have bikes for use free of charge near the fuel pumps.  The last 4 of our CTAF will open the lock.  Please take the lock with you and use it…and bring the bike and the lock back.  If you like these bikes, donations are accepted in the fee boxes or the Port office.  We don’t have helmets but encourage you to use one.

Phone-Sized Ferry Schedule

I put this here because I think some visitors to this website might appreciate a “cut-down” version of the ferry schedule that can be read easily on a phone.  This is why I started making it in the first place.

Meeting

The next regular meeting of the Port of Orcas Commission is Thursday, October 13th, 2016 at 4:30 PM in the terminal conference room.

Need Power!!

— We now have a small 12/24V GPU (with both alligator clamps and a NATO plug) for “jump-starting” an airplane.  Stop by or call the office when needed.  After hours, call the Airport Manager’s Cell phone (the number is on my business card which is in a dispenser by the conference room door).  Based on the limitations of our insurance, use is at your own risk.

New and Noteworthy:
