  • Do I have to be a geocacher to participate?
    No, but you will have a lot more fun if you do!  Simply sign up for a free account at geocaching.com to get started.
  • Is this something that the whole family will enjoy? Absolutely!  Geocaching is great fun for all ages, and kids will have a great time too!  Along with geocaching fun and games, the Olympic Peninsula has lots of fun touristy stuff to enjoy — beaches with lots of tidepools and good skipping stones; the Olympic Discovery Trail bike route in sections from Port Townsend to La Push! Plus there are lots of pet-friendly spots – check the map!
  • Where should we plan to stay? There are lots of options, from hotels, motels, B&B accommodations to tent camping, and everything in between.
  • Does it cost anything to participate in finding the geocaches? There’s no charge — simply download the online passport here on the website to get started.
  • Where is Port Angeles and how long will it take me to get there? Port Angeles is about 2.5 to 3 hours from the Seattle area depending on the ferries. From Tacoma, plan on a 2.5-hour drive. From downtown Seattle it’s about 3 hours and from Edmonds about 2.5 hours.  From Portland it’ll be 4 hours – no stopping.  If you are on Vancouver Island, you may wish to take the Victoria-Port Angeles ferry for a much faster route than travelling through the US border on Interstate 5. The crossing on the Coho is 90 minutes and drops you right in downtown Port Angeles.
