Where We Live

We live on Camano Island and on Whidbey Island to its west. We are surrounded by water - access to Whidbey is by ferry from Port Townsend to Keystone, or from Mulkiteo to Clinton, or by the Deception Pass bridge from Fidalgo Island. Access to Camano is via bridge from Stanwood.

To the east are the rivers bringing juvenile salmon to our 20 estuaries. Saratoga Passage lies between our two islands, and is home to gray whales each April. To the west are the Straits of San Juan de Fuca, bringing in a wealth of intertidal life from the Pacific Ocean.

See Our Beaches for information on how to access more than 60 beaches, and what you will find once you are there.

Beach Watchers are active at many of Our Parks, providing Beach Naturalist services, and identification/removal of creosote, noxious species, and marine debris.
