Kitsap Peninsula National Water Trails

In 2014, thanks to the efforts of Kitsap County, partners and volunteers, the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trails was officially designated by the U.S. Department of the Interior to be part of the National Water Trails System. Today, the Kitsap Peninsula is a major destination for all types of water-related activities — boating, scuba-diving, fishing and leisurely strolls along pubic piers and beaches. NEW: The KPNWT now has its own website at kitsappeninsulawatertrails.com, which includes a new Interactive Access Point Map
