Herron Island is a private island in southern Puget Sound lying between Key Peninsula to the east and Hartstine Island to the west. The island is 1.5 miles long and .75 miles wide, named by Captain George Vancouver while exploring Puget Sound in 1792, ‘Wednesday Island,’ it was renamed by Lieutenant Charles Wilkes in 1841 for a crewman, to ‘Herron Island.’ In 1958 the island was purchased by a maintenance company, lots were sold and it has been private with private access since. This small ferry carries about six vehicles between the west side of Key Pensinual and the island itself. The majestic Olympic Mountain range is displayed in winter glory behind the red ferry making way through the waters of Case Inlet.
