Explore the Northwest Coast Hwy 112

Head to the most Northwestern tip of the continental US exploring Cape Flattery, walk along Hobuck Beach and visit the internationally-known Makah Museum.

Along Hwy 112 are the communities of Clallam Bay, Sekiu and Neah Bay with spectacular views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and British Columbia’s Vancouver Island. Birders will delight in the variety of sea and migratory fowl found in this region, a list of sites and species is available by request or on-line.

Some of the best tide pools in Washington can be found near Clallam Bay at Slip Point.  Access is from the county day-use park right in town. Once on the beach, head to the right toward the point. Check the tides and allow plenty of time to be safe. 

Picturesque Sekiu has several boat marinas - a fun stroll to look at the boats and perhaps catch a glimpse of halibut, lingcod or salmon fresh from the Strait.

Continuing toward Neah Bay along Hwy 112, watch for the occasional gray whales that feed in the shallow reefs along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Keep an eye out, too, for bald eagles that can be seen along this dramatic stretch of highway, particularly in late winter.

Fishing charters and scenic coastal tours are available seasonally at Sekiu and Neah Bay.
