With several different options for mooring in and among it's various bays, plus dock space in Fossil Bay, Sucia Island offers uncommon opportunity for boaters looking for a destination or a tranquil way-point on a longer journey. Camping space is offered on the island itself, and a pavillion (a shelter with tables) is available via reservation by groups, but the... More

Beautiful setting, gorgeous bays and inlets . Great natural trails for walking and hiking. You can anchor out and row a small dingy to shore for a picnic. Or tie up at the dock. We have done both and always lucked with beautiful weather and tranquil waters. Study your charts and read the tide book.

Fossil Bay has beautiful views, dock space and mooring balls. Also campsites with the best views! Island is a jaunt but definitely worth it!

My brother owned a 28 foot sailboat and was an excellent sailor. He took me sailing in the San Juan Islands and we visited Victoria several times. We towed a small rowboat behind us and lived onboard the boat whenever we dropped anchor or tied up to a dock. We had a one burner alcohol stove & real "icebox". We... More

We spent the day circumnavigating Sucia in kayaks and saw so much gorgeous scenery. We stopped at a secluded park and had lunch...just lovely.

In my previous review I may have misled...while there is no body of fresh water there are wells in a central valley of the island that are pumped to provide some drinking water via faucets near one of the docks and camp area/ picnic shelter. Toilet facilities are composting style and well maintained. Fees for camping and moorage or dock... More

A sailing trip to the San Juan islands must include a visit to Sucia. A nice 15nm sail across the Strait of Georgia from our moorage at Pt Roberts we visit Sucia often over our April to September sailing season. I'm sure that hardy winter cruisers make Sucia a frequent visit. There are several anchorages as well as a park... More
