Jetty Island is back and awaiting your return! The public ferry began running on July 7 and runs five days a week (Wednesday through Sunday) and will occur until Labor Day. According to Visit Everett, the two-mile-long human-made island is located just off the west coast of Possession Sound near the Port of Everett and the Everett Naval Station. The island consists of no cars, no electricity, and no running water. So, if you are planning on making the trip make sure to bring everything you might need to have a great time.

To get there, you will need to reserve a space on the public ferry. It costs a minimal fee of $3 per person, but kids under the age of two are free. Before you get there, you can park at the Jetty Landing Park on a first come first served basis. The first two hours are free, but parking rates will apply for any additional time.

The website explains that the ferry departs from Jetty Landing, adjacent to the boat launch at 10th Street and W. Marine View Drive. Available return time passes can be picked up on arrival at the Jetty.

If you have your own boat, kayak, canoe, or paddle board, you’re welcome to take it to the island! But be aware, swimming is only allowed on the west shore that faces away from the Everett Marina. Additionally, there are no lifeguards on duty so swim at your own risk. The only bathroom on the island is just off the ferry dock when you arrive, so make sure to relieve yourself before you hike to your spot in the sand. To reserve a ferry ticket, click here!
