    Tour Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Peninsula

    by Kitsap Written Sep 27, 2010

    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.

    Address: Pick up at the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal

    Directions: Start on the Seattle waterfront, take a ferry to Bainbridge Island and explore Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Peninsula.

    Phone: 877.877.1950

    Fay Bainbridge State Park

    by glabah Written Feb 3, 2010

    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.

    Address: 15446 Sunrise Dr NE, Bainbridge Isle, WA

    Directions: Follow highway 305 to Phelps Road NE, to NE Lafayette Avenue, right onto Sunrise Drive NE. Kitsap Transit bus route 96 serves Sunrise Drive during peak period weekdays.
