Dungeness Spit

Washington, United States

Take an aerial adventure over one of the longest natural sand spits in the world.

Over five miles in length, Dungeness Spit in the Strait of Juan de Fuca has unique and ever-changing geography. Fly over Dungeness Bay as you look for harbor seals, elephant seals, the rare orca (killer whale), and more than 250 species of birds. Return to land with the peaks of the Olympic Mountains towering in the distance, and you may even spot a Columbia black-tailed deer in the grassy fields where the Dungeness River flows into the sea.

Things to know

Most people associate the Pacific Northwest with rainy days, and that’s true in most of the region. But Dungeness Spit is located in a rain shadow, and receives a fraction of the rain that the much wetter western side of the Olympic Mountain Range gets. This means more sunny days that are perfect for flying a drone!

  • Sep–Oct: Chinook and Coho salmon return to the mouth of the Dungeness River to spawn
  • Nov–Feb: Limited daylight hours with some rain and wind
  • Mar–Aug: Mostly sunny from Spring into Summer
