Ferry Traffic Leaving Coupeville Terminal Routed Away From Coupeville

Coupeville

“Keystone terminal gives way to ‘Coupeville’ ferry”

“The name change will help eliminate confusion visitors may find when they research ways to travel to Whidbey Island.”

Coupeville/Penn Cove is on the eastern shore of Whidbey Island- no ferry link to Port Townsend exists there.

Don’t book a bed and breakfast stay in Coupeville and plan to walk from the ferry terminal to your accommodations.

June 15, 2018 South Whidbey Record:

“Mucking about in clamming class”

“Last year, signs went up closing the waters around Penn Cove to any shellfish harvesting because testing revealed high levels of paralytic shellfish poison. The biotoxin can potentially lead to fatal paralytic shellfish poisoning in humans if consumed.”

“The Penn Cove ban has since been lifted.”

South Whidbey Record, which Penn Cove beach would you recommend for clam digging?

Love to see newspeople get out and ask questions about why:

“This beach is within the closure area for a sewage treatment plant outfall and is unsafe for recreational shellfish harvesting.”

Sounds like the sewage treatment plant is sending unsafe product into Penn Cove?

“State Dept. of Health cautions that Clams,Oysters and Mussels from this beach are not fit for human consumption at any time.”

The beach above (MONROE LANDING) is on the north shore of Penn Cove. Here is another beach on the south shore with the same status:
