Dabob Bay Cottage: We are here!

Dabob Bay is one of the largest and most-pristine salt marsh bay estuaries in Puget Sound. We are located on the east side of the Bolton Peninsula, which separates Quilcene Bay and Dabob Bay — on the north end of Hood Canal. Dabob Bay is home to six family-owned shellfish companies and is known worldwide for the quality of its water, shellfish and diverse wildlife.

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources Dabob Bay Natural Area, on the bay's north shore, was established in 1984 to protect our rare salt marsh and sand spit ecosystems. The natural area includes mature coastal forests, coastal streams, feeder bluffs, spawning areas, eelgrass beds, native Olympia oyster beds, tidelands and mudflats used by juvenile salmon and shorebirds; and its open marine waters which are used by salmon, marine birds, harbor seals and orcas. It's amazing to live here and we love sharing it with you.
