  • Short cycle from Islander Resort. Radiant sunsets when the fog lifts! Bring a cycle lock to walk the spit and view the marina.

  • Cast & crew are dilligent in keeping the Spit clean, safe and servicable. The only thing that would make Spencer Spit better is if showers were in the park.
  • Anchored on a soft bottom south cove of the spit. Great place for the night. Watch the minus tides!
