An Out-of-the-Way Gem in Seattle's Backyard
This mysterious island, accessible only by Argosy or private boat, is a treasure trove of new-to-you adventure. After the 45-minute boat ride, trek around the island via the bluffs along the beach, spot deer and eagles in their natural habitat, fish from the shore, or go on a geocaching treasure hunt. Expert tip: Don't miss the views of the Seattle skyline on your way to and from the island.
