Isle-de-Lis, commonly known as Rum Island, is a small island featuring an arbutus and Douglas fir tree forest. Like so many islands in this area cliffs are on the exposed side. A trail circles the island providing great views of Haro Strait and the San Juan Islands. Rum Island was named courtesy of its’ use as a liquor cache during prohibition. There are only 3 camping sites available so visiting kayakers are advised to arrive early during peak season.

Larger boats should look at Isle-de-Lis as temporary moorage only most of the time.
