A message to our neighbors in Tulalip:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The Hat Island Community Association sends our condolences on the tragic loss of your Tribal Officer, Charlie Cortez, in the line of duty.  The loss of a member of any community is heartbreaking but especially so for someone that has dedicated his young life to serving and protecting your citizens.  The Tulalip Tribe has always responded to help when needed from our small community here on Hat Island and our relationship with the Tulalip Tribes runs deep.  Please note that we have had you all in our hearts and minds and will continue to do so as you grieve the loss of your son.  In honor of Officer Cortez, we have received permission from the Governor’s Office of International Relations and Protocol to lower our flag to half mast through the end of November. 


Kimberli Gleason, Island Manager

The Hat Island Board of Trustees

And the entire community of the Hat Island Community Association

Masks on the Ferry 

Masks continue to be required on the ferry.  Please note that this means the entire trip.  Ferry crew will remind you if they see you remove your mask.  If they have to ask you repeatedly to keep your mask on you may be fined or perhaps suspended from riding the ferry.  Hat Island has many residents that fall into the high-risk category for Covid-19.  We are not willing to put them at risk, the crew at risk and for that matter any of our owners at risk.  We know that we are all weary of COVID-19.  However, as long as these restrictions are in place, we will be enforcing them

COVID-19 Update

Just a few reminders where the island stands regarding restrictions due to COVID-19.

  • Only owners and their families can currently ride the ferry.
  • No guest boats in the marina.
  • The public restrooms are closed.
  • The playground is currently closed.

The water repair is temporarily fixed. It will be permanently fixed in the near future and we'll keep you updated. Thanks to Chris for working late to get the water working for owners tonight and this weekend.

The water line for the G pressure loop was hit by service company setting up service to a home in Division G. Our Water crew is currently assessing the situation and we will keep everyone updated as we receive more information.

Happy Hump Day!
