Freshwater Bay Trail

Freshwater Bay Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Walk a rocky beach cove along the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Freshwater Bay; the scenery is varied and interesting. If the kids watch the horizon for marine traffic, they will see an assortment of powerboats, sailboats, occasional kayaks, barges, freighters, and container cargo ships headed for Port Angeles and Puget Sound.

Children who are fortunate or very observant may even spot marine traffic of the natural variety: whales and seals. They might also encounter scuba divers, who collect Pacific abalone and kelp greenling from deep below the surface, and Indians and local folks who collect clams, crab, and oysters at low tides. Kids can watch and enjoy the sea harvest, or simply throw rocks and wade into the gentle waves of this protected cove. But children should take no marine life and disturb nothing they see."
