We have reserved 40 tickets for Aug. 7, 11:00am. Park about 10:30, pay $3 for parking (cash or debit only) and be at the ticket kiosk 20 minutes ahead of time. Give yourself 10-15 minutes just to park, unload your beach stuff and picnic lunch, take a bathroom break with flushing toilets, and then walk across the grass to the landing area. Rachel Skurdal will hand out the boarding passes there. Return time 2:00pm or 2:30pm. (Return times can be adjusted once on the Island). There is a possibility of getting more tickets at the ferry dock, but not guaranteed,
The ferry departs from the Port of Everett, 10th Street boat launch at 10th and West Marine View Drive, and takes a quick 5 minute trip across to the jetty.
In addition to whatever beach items you want to bring, remember to pack sunscreen, a jacket depending on the weather and wind, food and lots of water or other fluids. There is very little shade or cover as well as no running water, concessions or electricity on the island. No pets and no glass allowed. You might also consider a change of clothes depending on your children. There is only one toilet/outhouse on the island, so you will want to stop in there before walking all the way onto the island. We try to go in the bathroom near the landing before we get on the ferry because it can get stinky on the beach side.
The City of Everett Parks and Recreation Department is trying to keep Jetty Island free for all of us, but that is dependent on taxes and budgets. There is a drop box near the ranger booth where you can donate to Jetty Island. They have a suggested donation of $2/adult and $1/child, and they appreciate anything you are able to give.
