If you are into taking your boat out for a weekend and living out of the boat or camping on shore this is a nice place to do it. The island has several hiking trails, nice places to kayak, and plenty of restrooms on shore. Make sure you take enough supplies to last you throughout your trip as resources are... More

Great place to visit by boat. Access to Island by boat only. Great hiking on Island and crabbing in anchorages. We stayed in Fossil Bay on mooring buoy. Very scenic, but can very windy in fossil bay when se winds pick up.

We spent one night, anchored, the mooring are very limited so get there early. We walked about a quarter of the park, and then made it back to the boat. Nice calm bay, for a good nights sleep.

We visited Sucia during a Kayaking trip hosted by Outer Island Excursions. It is an island so there isn't a lot of modern amenities. However, they do keep up what they have very nicely! It's amazing that they have this island for the public to enjoy. We would love to go back and camp here!

Privately boat over to the Park and roam the island. I believe there is one service that will take anyone over. The views are glorious, and the experience wondrous - especially if you follow an intrepid hiker, who thinks any dangerous climb can be tried. We survived our circuit around the island, but had to inch along a ridge over... More

The WA parks system has a gem in Sucia. Great place for a day hike. Should have brought lunch and stayed longer, but we loved the little time we did have. Sea lions, crazy variety of birds, beautiful beaches and pre-historic looking trees and vegetation. Just gorgeous.

We cannot spend enough time on Succia Island. An unspoiled paradise with breathtaking views. And you get treated to an incredible sunset for free. What is there not to like.

While staying in Orcas we took our boat twice to Sucia Island. What a fun place to hike, run and meet great people. You can camp here if you want to and overall things seemed clean and very respected by all the visitors.

Visited this island via boat from Orcas Island on a dinner cruise (Google "Cruise Control"). We walked the beaches for about an hour and explored the sandstone. Great history lesson from the sandstone quarry on the island as well.
