Whidbey Island During WWI & WWII

Explore Fort Casey and learn the history of when it was filled with Soldiers, Officers, Mechanics and staff tasked with defending the Puget Sound from invasion.

Constructed in the late 1800s, Fort Casey was equipped for defense and used as a training facility up to the mid-1940s. The fort houses a pair of rare 10-inch disappearing guns. While the guns were the height of technology in the early 1900s, improvements in warships and the advent of airplanes soon rendered them obsolete. Two additional 3-inch mounted guns are also on display in their original emplacements. You can explore these batteries to your heart’s content.

From the romantic 1903-vintage lighthouse, with its own interpretive center and gift shop, to the catacomb-like bunkers and batteries, this historic military fort is sure to ignite curiosity.

We enjoy a private tours of Fort Casey & The Admiralty Lighthouse.

Boxed lunch included.
