Check out links to the right & let us help you plan an adventure in mountain biking, whale watching to Friday Harbor, kayaking, or day sailing. We also have a wonderful Wooden Boat Foundation and many fine craftspeople in the marine trades that offer classes from sail making to rigging. Come broaden your horizons!

This unique old seaport provides a multitude of things to see and do, all year 'round. View classic wooden boats and sleek modern yachts in Point Hudson Harbor.
