As the largest City on the north Olympic Peninsula, Port Angeles has a moderate climate with approximately 25 inches of rainfall yearly. Ediz Hook, a 2.5-mile-long sand spit that curves eastward around Port Angeles, creates one of the deepest harbors on the West Coast.

The area includes approximately 10 square miles of land and 53 square miles of surface water. Port Angeles is located approximately 80 miles northwest of Seattle via the Edmonds/ Kingston Ferry and 170 miles southwest of Vancouver, British Columbia, via the Port Townsend/Keystone Ferry.


Port Angeles Masonic TemplePort Angeles, incorporated in 1890, is built on the site of I’e’nis and Tse-whit-zen, Klallam villages dating back at least 3000 years. “PA”, as locals call it, has been known mostly as a logging and mill town. Today’s Port Angeles is a thriving hub of tourism with its fine restaurants and outdoor activities alongside industries such as yacht-building, snow and skateboard manufacturing, paper mills, and forestry.
