Our harbor master will be out on a leave the next few weeks and we will be covering her shifts inhouse with island staff.  If you add your name late in the day to the rabbit transit list, please make sure to let the ferry crew know so that they can notify us you need a ride.  We monitor the reservation system but often times last minute reservations can be missed.

Employee Holiday Gift Fund- For those of us who would like to collectively thank our staff for their hard work and dedication to our community we are once again seeking donations for the 2020 Employee Holiday Gift Fund.  This is a great way for the community to say thanks to our Island Employees.  You can send in a check or donate online through the Hat Island website:

Port of Everett Parking for 2021

We have reached a three-year agreement with the Port of Everett in regards to long term parking permit.  As many know the Port has been reconfiguring their parking the last few years.  There has been a significant reduction in the number of 72-hour long term parking spaces for guests.  They continue to make changes and some of those changes will be welcomed by Hat Island residents in the form of a monthly option to pay for parking and spots closer to our boarding area near Anthonys.  Hat Island will have 45 spaces located in General Visitor Parking, Zone 1 Lot G.   Yearly passes will cost $656.00 per year.  Monthly passes will be offered as well.  During first and fourth quarter owners will be able to rent monthly spots at $50 per month and during second and third quarters the rate will be $60 per month.  Annual rates will increase by 2.3% yearly to keep up with inflation.

Owners will purchase their passes directly from the Port of Everett’s contracted parking agent.  Please watch for more information on this in the coming months. 

Parking area shown as Zone 1 Lot G will be marked for General Visitor and Hat Island Permits (which will be web-based) will be valid in this area of South Marina.

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.
