HARVEST PROFILE

DIRECTION TO SITE

Case Shoal is surrounded by water and accessible by boat only. The only landmark other than the shoal itself is the navigation day marker on the south end of the shoal (see beach map). The closest boat ramps are: W.R. Hicks County Park ramp, located on Shine Road, the ramp at the west end of the Hood Canal Bridge, and Salsbury County Park ramp, located on Wheeler Street west of Port Gamble. Salsbury County Park ramp is the better of the three ramps and has a dock. The ramp at the Hood Canal Bridge is useable during nearly all tidal cycles, but has limited parking.

Approximate GPS coordinates of the navigation marker at the south end of Case Shoal are: 47.8455o N, 122.671o W.
