Features

Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

Description

Turn Island State Park harbors abundant marine life off the shore of an easily accessible little camping island. The natural reef is made of a series of ledges starting in about 20' as you head toward the point. Around the point they transition to gradual stair-step shelves and smaller. Above the wall is the standard bull kelp in the shallows.

This park is protected from regular traffic associated with shore access sites but still easily accessible with dive kayaks or by boat.

Special Restrictions:

Current sensitive site. Requires boat access to get to the island. Beware of bull kelp.
Current slack adjustments based on San Juan Channel
Add one hour to slack before flood
Add 5 minutes on slack before ebb

How to get there:

Turn Island is found near Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, just around the point to the east. It is also accessible by kayak from the beach access at the end of Turn Point Road about 2 miles east of the ferry terminal in Friday Harbor. Launch on this beach and paddle to the west side of Turn Island State Park (directly in front of the beach. There is a clear are to easily land on the northwest side of the island. Dive toward the point north of this beach.
