Summer is here and that means...
Summer Fun at Jetty Island!
Come join us for wonderful adventures, sand castle building, clam digging/poking, driftwood forts, seaweed between your toes, sandy sandwiches and beach blanket conversations with fun friends! Jetty Island days are part of the happy summer memories, especially with lots of great people to visit with. So come join us, and bring your friends.
Purchase your $3 ferry ticket online for Aug. 18, Thursday at 12pm. Park, pay $2 (2-4hrs) for parking and be at the ticket kiosk 20 minutes ahead of time. Give yourself 20-25 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. Return time 3:00pm. (Return times can be adjusted once on the Island). If the noon timeslot is full, feel free to book an earlier/later timeslot and we can meet over on the island!
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.
Looking forward to being beach bums with friends!
