Boats may land only at the designated landing area of the Dungeness Spit just south of the Lighthouse between the yellow marker posts (see Refuge map). Boaters must contact the Refuge office at 360-457-8451 before landing. The beach area is rocky and has a gentle slope, which makes it hard to get ashore without wading over the slippery rocks.
The closest public boat launch is located on Cline Spit 5 ½ miles north of downtown Sequim. To reach Cline Spit, travel north on Sequim Avenue which turns into Sequim-Dungeness Way. Follow the Dungeness Scenic Loop signs past the old white schoolhouse. After crossing the Dungeness River turn right onto Marine Drive and continue towards the water. Go past Oyster House road and when the road forks, bear right onto Cline Spit and the launch area.
Launch a boat at Cline Spit, take a kayak or ride a water limo to the lighthouse.
