Old Man House, ½ nm south of Suquamish, is a pleasant stopover. It is 50 yds north of the Agate Pass pilon. However, the restrooms there are permanently closed. There is an exhibit there.

Porta-potties available at Keyport boat launch. Landing is good at any tide.


  • During Chief Seattle days, consider doing this trip in reverse, which allows you to view the festivities but avoid parking congestion in Suquamish.
