Doing Business With The Park

San Juan Island National Historical Park strives to help enable the National Park Service mission by utilizing sound business practices in management of limited commerical opportunities, in-park partnerships, and special park uses.

Federal regulations prohibit engaging in or soliciting any business in park areas, except in accordance with the provisions of a permit, contract, or other written agreement with the United States. As in other National Park Service areas, commercial visitor services or other commercial activities may be provided only by those holding an authorization from the United States.

Commercial Use Authorizations

San Juan Island NHP issues Commercial Use Authorizations for three types of visitor services:
  • Driving tours
  • Guided Bicycle tours
  • Guided Kayak tours

If you are interested in providing these services, please follow the above link to review the informational documents posted. Specific requirements must be met including insurance coverage, guide training, and payment of authorization fees.
