Do[edit][add listing]

SCUBA diving is popular here, as it is home to two underwater marine preserves: Octopus Hole and Sund Rock.

Hoodsport also serves as a main jump-off point from US Hwy 101 to the Olympic Mountains and Olympic National Park. Hoodsport serves as a good base, where visitors can return for a hot meal and good night's sleep after exploring the Skokomish River at Staircase; picnicking, fishing and swimming at Lake Cushman; trekking on the National Park trails; or scrambling to the top of Mt. Ellinor for views of Hood Canal and the Cascades in the distance.

Visitors can pick up souvenirs, local wines, and fresh seafood at one of the shops in this quaint tourist town.
