One day trip from Mukilteo to Whidbey Island.
Fort Casey State Park is located on Whidbey Island, in Island County, Washington state.
Admiralty Inlet was considered so strategic to the defense of Puget Sound in the 1890s that three forts, Fort Casey on Whidbey Island, Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island, and Fort Worden at Port Townsend, were built at the entrance with huge guns creating a “triangle of fire.” This military strategy was built on the theory that the three fortresses would thwart any invasion attempt by sea.
This Ferry takes 20 minutes. There is a ferry available every half an hour from both sides.
Don’t forget to pack your lunch. You can buy Coffee and snacks from cafeteria in the ferry.
Most of Fort Casey’s guns and mortars were removed during World War I
It stays open until 5 PM if you want to go up and enjoy the view from the top.
You will see the beautiful view of the Cascades mountains from the ferry.
A trip to enjoy rare sunny winter weekends in Seattle!
