Hood Canal and Southern Puget Sound

Steamboat

Steamboat Island is a small, supposedly steamboat-shaped knob of hemlock and madrona trees, wild berries and gravelly beaches, rising right where Totten Inlet joins the other fingers of southern Puget Sound. Isolated yet well positioned, it makes extraordinary oyster habitat. It’s a Totten by any other name, deep-cupped and fluted, gray-green, fast-growing, with a mild, earthy flavor and a cucumbery crispness as you chew.
