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.

What's to dislike - a wonderful place. We paddled in and camped. Saw seals and otters and a wonderful sunset.

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!
