The man-made Jetty Island is owned by the Port of Everett. It is a narrow, 3.2 km long island with wide flat sandy beaches and strong winds, making it a really famous spot for skimboarding and kite-surfing. Jetty Island was built during the early part of the 1900's by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, even if it was first a failed effort to create a freshwater harbor. The island now serves as a park, accessible by ferry. From the month of June through the holiday weekend of Labour Day, Everett provides free ferry service from the 10th Street Boat launch to Jetty Island.
