Olympic National Park Tour from Seattle

10 reviews
Olympic National Park is well known for having several different ecosystems to explore: subalpine forest, wildflower meadows, temperate rain-forest, and the rugged Pacific Shore. This twelve hour tour allows you to sample each of these systems with the added advantage of having an experienced guide to answer any questions that may arise. Come explore tide pools along the coastal beaches, roam among old-growth forest, trek atop mountain ridges with breathtaking vistas and stand by glacier-birthed rivers and lakes. The tour begins on a leisurely ferry boat ride over the Puget Sound to the Olympic Peninsula. The exact itinerary will be curated by the tour guide however our first stop will usually find us at Hurricane Ridge where you will hike to an incredible view of the valley below and the snow-capped mountains in the distance. We will move on to Crescent Lake and the seasonally Sol Duc Valley, and a sandy beach along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Please plan on approximately six miles.

On a day-trip north from Seabrook along 101, we spent a lovely hour or so strolling the gorgeous Ruby Beach. There were a fair number of people on the beach, but not so many as to make social distancing difficult. When we set off walking south, we encountered few people. Along the way, we found a few small tide pools and marveled at the hundreds of anemones and other invertebrates. Further south, there are several small sea caves that make for interesting photo opps. Although the beach near the mouth of the river was pretty clean, we imagine that further south or north there are opportunities to do some productive beach combing and agate/seaglass hunting.

Short walk down from parking lot to a beach with lots of wonderful things to see like rock outcroppings, incredible waves rolling in set after set, etc.

This place beats Canon Beach and Face Rock in Oregon. With it's driftwood and pebble Beach, it's definitely more mysterious and stands out as one of the best on the West Coast. Need to watch your step on the pebble beach because we saw someone being treated by the park ranger for a foot injury. Our hiking sticks helped us keep balance. Parking is difficult to get on a weekend. There are vault toilets at the parking lot. I don't think there is running water.

Birdie at the ranger station told us that many scenes from Twilight were filmed at Ruby Beach, and I can see why. The many rock formations erupting from the beach and the water would be perfect for the creepy atmosphere needed in that film. The fact that the smoke and fog covered much of the landscape just added to the ethereal feeling.

This iconic landscape photo location is phenomenal to gaze upon the beauty before you. I took the photos the day before the smoke from the western fires in 2020 settled in on the coast.
