Jetty Island

Composed of sediment from the Snohomish River (material created by maintenance dredging), Everett’s Jetty Island began as a riprap jetty to provide a navigation channel and protected the harbor in the late 19th century. The Port of Everett gained ownership of Jetty Island in 1929 and, with the help of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, built a new marsh of dredged river materials in 1989. Jetty Island is a popular recreation designation open and accessible year-round by personal watercraft or by ferry during select summer months. Home to more than 45 bird species including osprey, shorebirds, hawks, eagles, cormorants, and ducks, visitors may also see seals surfacing near the water’s edge or lounging on the island’s shore.
