Point No Point

Puget Trough

Don't let its anti-climactic name fool you. Point No Point is an excellent place to visit, especially in winter. Show up about an hour before high tide and be treated to fly-by waterfowl, alcids, loons, grebes, and gulls. The bushes and trees can host a variety of wintering or migrating songbirds.
