Jetty Island Days began Friday with a treasure hunt led by Pirates of the Puget Sound.

The Pirates, known as the “Jack Pack,” are a division of the Seattle Knights and have visited Jetty Island every opening day of the last five years.

Each summer, Everett officials operate a small ferry between the 10th Street Boat Launch and the island. The trip takes only a couple of minutes.

Everett residents and groups of 12 or more can make reservations, or just show up at the 10th Street boat launch and grab a free pass.
