Excellent bay and estuary kayaking are a short carry and a few steps down to the adjoining cove. There is a boat launch under the Rainbow bridge which is about five minutes away. Certain areas get very shallow at low tide so knowing the waters is a good idea. There is plenty of parking for a vehicle with a trailered boat. There is water in the cove from mid-tide and above, so tide tables must be consulted when planning trips. The cove is also an excellent place for children to explore and play under adult supervision.
Eagles often fish out over the bay and, before and after fishing, perch in fir trees next to the house. Seals follow schools of fish as they return on incoming tides, as do families of river otters. Dot Island, just offshore, is the home and nesting site for oyster catchers, whose sharp cries can often be heard from the house.
Glampers can check out the Tulip and farm festivals as well as the boat shows and car shows. The Museum of Northwest Art has a great auction. There are also a few bike and road races that happen in the area and there is a large motorcycle gathering. Fishing and crabbing are great in season. The birdwatching and beach combing are amazing. There are lots of art galleries and restaurants to visit. There is also some good live music and theater. Edison/Bow, Mt. Vernon, and Anacortes, as well as La Conner, are great places to explore.
