Access is via a short ferry ride from the Port of Everett.
Man-made Jetty Island spans two miles and is composed of sediment deposited by the Snohomish River. The port gained ownership of the island in 1929. Assisted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a marsh was built from dredged river material in 1989.
There is no electricity or plumbing on the island. The only structure is a floating restroom, offshore. The island is home to many wildlife species including salmon, waterfowl and bald eagles. Jetty Island offers warm sand, shallow waters and picturesque nature trails to visitors.
The yearly island opening includes educational walks and tours for all ages. So grab a beach towel, a picnic lunch and plenty of sunscreen to enjoy one of Everett's best local getaways.
