Visitor Center

Bainbridge is an island, but there is a bridge to the Kitsap Peninsula at the north end. Visitors can drive from Tacoma over the Narrows Bridge on Highway 16 and follow Highway 3 at Bremerton to Poulsbo, where Highway 305 leads to Bainbridge Island.

Or, if you’re driving the Olympic Peninsula loop clockwise, continue south-east on Highway 104, cross the Hood Canal Bridge and take Highway 3 to Poulsbo, and Highway 305 to Bainbridge.

Once you’ve arrived, stop by the Visitor’s Kiosk at the ferry terminal or Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center at our office.
