Whidbey Island, Washington


Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island, Washington

Welcome to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, home to the Navy's EA-6B Prowler, A-6E Intruder and P3-C Orion aircraft. Here, aircrew training in electronic warfare simulation and low-level flight operations is unequaled elsewhere in the country.

Whidbey Island, part of the San Juan Islands, lies in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains. This produces only 21" of rain annually, creating and 'ecological island' within Puget Sound. This natural effect, along with the Navy's commitment to conduct military missions with consideration for the environment, has resulted in excellent wildlife habitat.

NASWI comprises four properties totaling 9,000 acres: Ault Field, Seaplane Base, Outlying Field Coupville, and Lake Hancock. Representative habitats include old growth and mature second growth Douglas fir forests, old orchards and open fields, fresh and saltwater wetlands, and miles of scenic coastline.

Public access to these preserved habitats is limited to the Seaplane Base where a vehicle eco-tour has been established by the Environmental Affairs Office. Access to other areas is restricted, and is by special permission only. Please contact the EAO, (206) 257-1009, for further information.

Navy Natural Resources and Land Management Program

The Navy and Marine Corps manage more than four million acres worldwide. Much of this land is located in sensitive wetlands along valuable coastlines, some of the most ecologically significant areas in the world. The location of our real estate holdings makes it imperative that we plan and execute our various military missions in harmony with our environment. It is a Department of the Navy goal to promote an environmental ethic within the Navy workforce.

The Department of the Navy supports numerous partnerships with other Federal, State, local and private resource groups to promote an environment ethic within the Navy workforce.

To succeed in its mission, and to earn public confidence, the Navy must emphasize natural resources stewardships in every aspect of its land use. It does. Come see for yourself and discover our resources.


The Department of the Navy and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of neotropical migratory birds. For information, call the U.S. Navy at (703) 325-0427 or NFWF at (202) 857-0166.
