Jet Boat Tour to Deception Pass

21 reviews
At peak current at over 8 knots (9.5 mph) almost 900 million gallons of water pour through Deception Pass. That’s 50 times more flow that all the rivers in the Puget Sound. You can see why there is a 4.5 foot height difference in the water level from one side of the pass to the other!<br><br>But don’t worry, the boat is equipped with latest safety equipment. Captain Brett and crew will ensure safe passage and an entertaining time for all!<br><br>The Island Whaler is a New Zealand designed jet drive catamaran. The catamaran style and foil assist ensures a soft and stable ride in any conditions. The open deck seating will give you the best 360° viewing opportunity and interaction with the surrounding elements.

An excellent example of preserved Military History in conjunction with practical day use. Lots of attention to preservation of the history of the Base with lots of open space, camping, and hiking areas. The view of the sound from the topof the Gun inplacements is spectacular.

Fort Casey is always a fun place to stop for a few hours when on Whidbey Island! When my kids were little, they loved climbing around (with supervision of course), and running on the large grassy field. We visited recently, all adults. We all STILL really loved climbing around the fort. Our dog even enjoyed walking up on to the fort. The views across the sound of the Olympic Peninsula were spectacular. There was LOTS of space to social distance from others who were visiting. It was just nice to wander around in the sunshine and check the place out.

It was very interesting to learn about the past and to see the great views from the top of the Fort. On the flat grasslands below was great for flying kites, from small kid kites to large spectacular kites.

Nice park with a good, small campground. Very nice views over the sound. The ferry was mostly nice and quiet (except when some fog rolled in and they had to use the horn) and did not bother the campground which was basically next to the ferry landing. The fort itself looks to be in fairly good condition and provides some historical insight.
