About Guemes Channel, WA

Guemes Channel is a water body in the state of Washington that takes up an area of Rosario Strait and the northern region of Puget Sound. It serves as a passage that separates Fidalgo Island and Guemes Island. With a length of around 3 miles and a depth of about 40 to 270 feet, the waters of the channel run towards the north, merging with the waters of Bellingham Channel.

For over a hundred centuries, the residents who have lived in the Fidalgo and Guemes Island areas have leaned to Guemes Channel for their water supply. The first groups of people who lived by the water body were the native Samish and Swinomish people. Today, mainly the Samish group of people live near the channel.
