Cutts Island is a short paddle from Kopachuck State Park in the Southern Puget Sound. Cutts is only accessible by boat and is open for people to explore the beaches and trails of the small island. During low tides, the island offers long sandy beaches below the large clay bluffs towering above. Seals and sea lions can regularly be found lounging along the beaches. Visitors to the island should not approach or disturb them when exploring the island. Cutts Island offers kayakers a great day trip during all times of the year.
