NAS Whidbey is actually composed of two bases 5 miles apart: the original Seaplane Base, on the eastern shore of Whidbey Island and Ault Field, on the island’s western shore, looking out at the magnificent Olympic Mountains and the San Juan Islands.
Whidbey Island is about 35 miles long and is ranked as the fourth-longest and fourth-largest island in the contiguous United States. Here you will find abundant recreation possibilities, from boating, hiking and biking to hunting and fishing.
