The Kitsap Peninsula

The Kitsap Peninsula

   The Kitsap Peninsula extends longitudally from Everett, Washington to Lakewood, Washington and can be found nestled between the Olympic Peninsula and the Admiralty Strait. Visible from Whidbey Island's west shore at the south end of the Island, the Peninsula has 371 miles of shoreline and is located just 30 minutes from Seattle via the Washington State Ferry to Bainbride Island and Bremerton. You can also get there by crossing either the Tacoma Narrows Bridge on the south, the Hood Canal Bridge on the north or from Olympia on Highway 3. The Kitsap Peninsula is home to many marinas and dozens of historic waterfront cities and towns including Kingston, Hansville, Port Gamble, Poulsbo "Little Norway", Suquamish, Keyport, Seabeck, Silverdale, Bremerton, and Port Orchard.
   The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard is located adjacent to the city of Bremerton on Sinclair Inlet, was established in 1891. Today, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard is the largest and most diverse shipyard on the West Coast and one of Washington state's largest industrial complexes.
