Hood-Canal is a fjord forming the western lobe, and one of the four main basins of Puget Sound in northwest Washington. Hood Canal is a natural waterway - not a man-made "canal." It is long and narrow with an average width of 1.5 miles and 212 miles of shoreline. Hood Canal extends for about 50 miles southwest from the entrance between Foulweather Bluff and Tala Point to Union, where it turns sharply to the northeast, a stretch called The Great Bend. It continues for about 15 miles to Belfair, where it ends in a shallow tideland called Lynch Cove. Along its length, Hood Canal separates the Kitsap Peninsula from the Olympic Peninsula of Washington. There are several state parks on the shores of Hood Canal, including Belfair, Twanoh, Potlatch, Triton Cove, Scenic Beach, Dosewallips, Kitsap Memorial, and Shine Tidelands. Theler Wetlands is located at the tip of the Canal in Belfair. It provides a few miles of trails and a protected environment for marsh and estuary birds and plants. Sea kayaking is a popular sport at Hood Canal off shore from the town of Union. Sport fishing is another popular sport for cutthroat, spinrays, kokanees and rainbow trout. Other attractions include Port Gamble, a mill town that is now a National Historic Landmark. An upscale resort at Hood Canal offers an 18-hole golf course, unique shopping, fine dining and accommodations and spectacular views of the Olympic mountain range.

Hood Canal Weather & Climate

Northwest Washington , near the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands, has a fairly temperate climate. The temperature of the salt water surrounding the islands doesnft vary greatly throughout the seasons, so it helps cool the air surrounding the islands. Northwest Washington experiences frequent cloud cover, fog and drizzle. Misty morning will be followed by partial clearing and occasional showers. An umbrella always comes in handy. Evenings are usually warm with a light ocean breeze. Temperatures range from low 30s in winter to mid 80s in summer. Coastal conditions are generally much more harsh than those in the Puget Sound. @
