Formed by glaciers, Puget Sound is a protected deep water fjord connected to the Pacific Ocean. To the west the Olympic Mountains rise 7,979 feet and to the east the Cascade Range including spectacular volcanic peaks of Mount Rainier and Mount Baker rise to 14,411 feet. While a relatively calm sea, it is recommend to dress in layers as the water temperature is a chilly 45-50 degrees.

Eagles, Osprey, Seals, Sea Lions, Porpoise and Orca are just some of the wildlife that can be observed in Puget Sound throughout the year.
