  • We drove op the west side of Puget Sound and Hood canal on the way to Port Angeles. this canal had beautiful views and am glad we decided to go this route instead of the ferry across from Edmond.  more »
  • This is a great area to visit, fish, clam, crab and visit. Views of the Olympics are fantastic, especially when there's snow! Oysters are also wonderful!  more »
  • clear clean water allows the cultivation of seafood; the landscape is beautiful and I hope it remains free of industrial pollution

  • Wonderful beaches, swimming (in season) boating, hiking and just plain fun
  • One of God's marvelous creations. The Hood Canal offers great fishing, boating, clam digging, and gorgeous views. Every now and then if you are present you may just be lucky enough to see one of our Navy's Trident Sub's making its way to Naval Base Bangor located on the Kitsap County side of the canal. The Hood Canal Bridge is considered to be one of the largest floating MegaStructures in the United States...Incredible mountain views of the Olympic Mountains, Mount Ranier and at times Mount Baker!
  • I have only been south to the union river area but it is still accessible from hood canal. Good place to go hunting and walking in the wildlife area. Tides are very temperamental and inconsistent so read the tide tables before setting out or you may find yourself grounded if you near Lynch Cove. Tides are also very high in normal walking areas along the highway. Good hunting for ducks and Canadian goose. Mostly bufflehead, mergansers, and pintail ducks.
  • A beautiful place to visit
  • The most Beautiful place in the world!
