Driving Directions, Meeting Locations and Ferry Schedules
Full-Day/Half-Day trips launch from Wildcat Cove in Larrabee State Park. This boat ramp is on Cove Road off of Chuckanut Drive (Highway 11) just south of Bellingham and Fairhaven. To get there from either direction, simply drive along Chuckanut Drive (Highway 11) in Larrabee state park, keeping an eye out for the brown and white boat ramp signs. Following those signs, turn west onto Cove Road (towards the water). Parking at Wildcat Cove requires a Washington State Parks Discover Pass. Bring yours if you have one, or pay $10 for a day pass when you arrive. http://www.discoverpass.wa.gov/
