Take a Washington State ferry to Bainbridge Island. The scenery is beautiful and it's a 35 minute ride across Puget Sound. Make reservations in advance (www.KitsapTours.com) and when you walk off the ferry you'll be met by Kitsap Tours.
The Bainbridge Island / Kitsap Peninsula tour takes about 6 hours and you learn about and get to visit beautiful Bainbridge Island, Suquamish, home of Chief Seattle and the Suquamish tribe, Poulsbo on fjord-like Liberty Bay and historic Port Gamble.
The Bloedel Reserve tour goes to the world famous garden on Bainbridge Island. It's a half day tour and a guide is provided.
Tours are guided but there is time on your own to explore. The guides are knowledgeable and the bus is a beautiful luxury minibus.
Located in the far northwest corner of Bainbridge Island, this relatively small state park is one of the few public spaces on the island. The park has restroom facilities, a public beach (though there is a lot of driftwood between the beach and the parking lot) and tent camping facilities.
If you like beaches, the time to visit is definitely during low tide: there isn't much sand when the water is high!
Views of Mount Rainier and Puget Sound, and the rest of the surrounding area (including a number of the Cascade Peaks, including Mount Baker, what appears to be Glacier Peak or nearby peaks, and what appears to be the edge of Mount Shuksan poking out from behind Mount Baker) are quite spectacular on a clear day.
Come enjoy a wonderful three-hour walk on our beautiful 255-acres. You will have the opportunity to see our bog, cattail marsh, pond, beautiful forest and ravine. You will also learn about the native animals and plants present on our site, and will visit the building suite for our educational buildings and lodges.
nothing to special
just a few rocks piled ontop of each other that someone painted like a frog over thirty years ago its now an island land mark.
when you go to see him dont forget to see his partner lady bug rock resting just behind and to the side of frog.
Enjoy the fantastic views of the Seattle skyline from Manitou Beach.
The best views of the skyline are from the ferry, but there are also some nice viewpoints on Bainbridge itself.
