Vendovi Island is very remote, located east of Sinclair Island, west of Bellingham, and between Guemes and Lummi Islands. Only two of the island’s 217 acres have been developed. Vendovi is one of the wildest private islands in the San Juan archipelago, which is why for many years it has been a priority for permanent conservation.
Vendovi Island Preserve is open for public visitation each year from mid-April through mid-October. During this seasonal period, the preserve is open to visitors Thursday through Monday from 10 am to 6 pm. The preserve is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
We are working to manage a delicate balance between protecting the ecological integrity of the island and human enjoyment of this property.
