Off the Base
Washington is one of the best places to enjoy a wealth of recreational opportunities year-round. Surrounded by mountains, lakes, oceans and an arid climate to the east, the Pacific Northwest offers an incredible backyard to explore and discover. Just a short distance from the city, NAS Whidbey Island is a quick drive to museums, theaters, restaurants, major sporting events, the Seattle music scene. Our goal is to get you out and enjoying your time in the Northwest.
