Neah Bay & Sekiu, WA Professional Review and Guide
"Tucked away on the outer edge of Washington and the northwestern tip of the Olympic Peninsula, Neah Bay is home and home port to the Makah (muh-kah) Indians, a unique tribe unrelated to any others in the United States. These are a handsome, intelligent people who can trace their seafaring ancestry as far back as 1000 B.C. The Makahs have traditionally depended on the sea for most of their food—today mainly as commercial fishermen and charter operators, in the past as fishermen, shellfish gatherers, and whalers. As whalers, they showed unparalleled courage and skill, venturing forth in canoes to hunt their great quarry, armed only with harpoons with points made of mussel shells.
The community of Clallam Bay (population 600) is about 2 miles east of Sekiu. Here and elsewhere along State Route 112, sportfishing is the main attraction, with hiking, beachcombing, photography, and wildlife watching among other popular attractions. This eTrail includes information on lodging, campgrounds, RV parks, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and outdoor activities near these coastal cities."
