Located on the Semiahmoo Spit, the 212-room Semiahmoo Resort features a pool, full-service spa, fitness center, multiple and diverse restaurants and two challenging and highly acknowledged public golf courses (Semiahmoo Golf & Country Club and Loomis Golf Trail Club). Semiahmoo Resort is one of the best lodging choices in Northwest Washington, for those traveling for business or leisure.
Semiahmoo Spit (separating Semiahmoo Bay and Drayton Harbor) is also home to Semiahmoo County Park, which boasts more than 300 acres of tideland and approximately 1.5 miles of level pathways ideal for outdoor adventures such as walking, biking, rollerblading, kayaking, clamming, sand sculpting, kite flying and picnicking.
The region’s tide pools, estuaries and waterways attract thousands of geese, ducks, gulls, loons and shorebirds each year and recently made the Audubon Society’s list as one of Washington state’s top birding destinations. Drayton Harbor attracts a high population of endangered species as well including the bald eagle, peregrine falcon and marbled murrelet.
The Semiahmoo Marina, situated on the south side of the entrance to Drayton Harbor, boasts 300 slips and a mercantile. From here guests can rent kayaks, mopeds, paddle boats, and other fun opportunities.
The Plover, a historic seasonal ferry shuttles passengers between Semiahmoo and downtown Blaine WA. Mere minutes from Canada and only 35 miles from Vancouver, the casual community of Blaine offers many attractions and activities for visitors from both sides of the border.
