Jetty Island is 2-mile-long by half-mile-wide man-made island that lies just off the Everett waterfront. The beach is soft sand and remains extremely shallow for a great distance. This allows the water to heat up and offers a true beach experience.
Jetty Island is home to more than 45 bird species including osprey, shorebirds, hawks, eagles, cormorants and ducks. It is not uncommon to see seals or even a pod of whales swimming by.
The extreme sport of kiteboarding is growing in popularity and many athletes travel from outside the area to kiteboard at Jetty Island. The combination of steady winds and shallow water make it perfect for the sport.

It has been my experience that you should expect to wait at least an hour if you are not in line by 9 or 10. On occasion you may not even be able to get on. And it is simply first come first serve and no one will give you any answers if you try calling.
If at all possible you should make reservations for the ferry.
