Port Angeles Harbor and Ediz Hook Professional Review and Guide

"In 2003, a construction project on Ediz Hook to build a state dry dock unearthed Tse-whit-zen (pronounced ch-WHEET-son), the largest Native American village ever found in the Puget Sound region. Much like Dungeness Spit, Ediz Hook was once a natural sand spit shaped by wind and waves. Since the early 1900s it has been built on, thus ending its natural life but also providing a solid foundation for a pulp mill, US Coast Guard station, bike trail, and protection for Port Angeles Harbor.

A town supported by logging, a working harbor, and tourism, Port Angeles sits below the backdrop of the Olympic Mountains, and views across the Strait of Juan de Fuca of Victoria, British Columbia, and Mount Baker to the east. Also a hub of outdoor recreation, “PA ” as it’s known locally has good hiking, white-water kayaking, surfing, and, some say, the best sea kayaking on the West Coast."
