If you happen to have access to a boat in Puget Sound go here. You will be transported away from congestion, crazy news and the crowd to a beautiful, tranquil place where all there is, beautiful anchorages and bays, untouched forest and sublime trails through the woods

Take the water taxi from Smuggler's Villa, northshore of Orcas to Sucia. Rent kayaks for a spectacular circumnavigation of the park islands. Plenty of protected paddling waters.

Access via Outer Island Epeditions or a ferry service from Marina at Smuggler's Villa Resort on north end of Sucia Island. Beautiful bays. Fun to hike. Seals on nearby rocks. Eagles soaring overhead. Look for the fossils in hills along Fossil Bay. Clean camp toilets near dock. No other services.

Unless you have a yacht or power boat, getting here direct from mainland is a long paddle from island to island. You could go to Orcas or Lummi Is. via ferry and then make your kayak crossing to Matia and Sucia. Sucia is a island formed by a series of underwater mountain ridges so it is cut with many bays. It is all state park with miles of hiking trails along the fingers of the island. Land facilities are primitive. No fresh water. The bays fill with yachts on nice weekends and the beaches are a destination camp for kayak floatillas. Beautiful views of surrounding sound and islands with Mt Baker in the east meet you from every prominent point. You will need to pay moorage and park fees...see Washington State parks website for details. The moorages consist of a limited number of mooring bouys in most bays and some mooring lines. If you are yachting you will need a dinghy to make shore. Tides vary the water level 12 feet or so and the beaches are not very suitable for beaching power boats without risking damage.

We packed a lunch and had a great day visit. We can't wait to camp overnight sometime as well. Beautiful island!
