Jetty Island Days officially began Sunday with ferry rides from the 10th Street Boat Launch and Marine Park at 10th and W. Marine View Drive. Ferry boats leave seven days a week through Sept. 3.
Everett's 2-mile-long beach oasis supplies water, warm sand and nature trails. It's also popular with kiteboarders.
Visitors can park for free at Marine Park from Monday through Thursday; the Port of Everett charges a $3 parking fee on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Parking machines will accept credit cards.
Reservations on the ferry can be made in advance by calling 425-257-8304. For more information, go to Everett's website at To meet the plants and animals that call Jetty Island home, take a look at our handy guide.
