  • Wait for a calm day then kayak the 2 3/4 miles to the island, putting in at North Beach. jaw-dropping scenery.

  • Hard to get to, but worth the trip. Fossil beds (leave them in place), tranquil camping. Superb views. Salish Sea at tis best.

  • Didn't think I'd like it before we got there. Was I wrong! FYI...You can only get there by boat. Enjoyed a nice hike and beautiful scenery.
  • Fossil Bay, Echo Bay, Shallow Bay, Snoring Bay, Ewing Cove, Fox Cove — something for every experienced boater, whether you want a social dock atmosphere, a secluded anchorage or something in between. It gets busy in boating season, but distance from any services keeps it from being overrun. Many well-maintained hiking trails, spectacular views at every turn, interpretive and directional signage tell the human and geological story (and you might even spot a fossil yourself), clean/stocked pit toilets. Fantastic kayaking along water-carved sandstone bluffs. Watch for herons, seals, otters and even occasional cavorting orcas in the strait between Sucia and Matia Islands.
