Geocache Description:

Craft Island is located in the delta of the Skagit River. It can be accessed by boat, or foot. It has great views of Whidbey Island, Camano Island, Fidalgo Island, and Mount Rainier on a clear day.


On a blustery day we set off in our hovercraft to deliver yet another cache. The dog went with us in her brand, spanking new life jacket, needless to say she didn’t like it. We parked the hovercraft and as the wind blew we searched high and low for just the right spot.

When we placed the cache the tide height was about 9 feet and the trail was not covered. Hiking to it is flat and fairly easy, the height of the island is about 60 feet once you get to it. We have never walked to the island but most people do. From parking area on Fir Island it appears to be about a 30 minute walk. Boating to it can be difficult as the island at the lowest tide can be a mile from the water, check your tides.

The above information is from the original listing, I'm keeping it to preserve the "flavor" of the original cache.
