Vashon-Maury Island: Our Home

Boarding a ferry to an island allows your retreat to begin before you even arrive at your destination. 

Vashon-Maury Island is located in the Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest. Our island is a beautiful, rural oasis. You can easily visit for the day or for longer retreats. When you depart from Seattle, Tacoma, or Southworth, the ferry ride becomes part of the time dedicated to well-being. 

 

Travel to Vashon-Maury Island

Vashon Island is accessible only by water (or sky): there are no bridges or highways from the mainland. 

There are, however, ferries to the Vashon terminal from Fauntleroy (in West Seattle) and Southworth (on the Kitsap Peninsula), or to the Tahlequah terminal from Point Defiance (in Tacoma) that will bring you, and your car if desired, to our island. View your ferry schedule through the Washington State Department of Transportation website.

The ferry ride takes 15-25 minutes from any of these terminals. If you drive on to the ferry, we highly recommend going up to the passenger deck to look out at the view along the way. It may look a lot like the above photo (and likely without a ferry blocking your view of Mt. Rainier!).
