Get to Know Fox Island

Fox Island is connected to Gig Harbor via a bridge. You can enjoy the benefits of island life, yet never worry about having to catch a ferry! Also, Fox Island is just about a 20-minute drive into Downtown Gig Harbor and only 30-40 minutes to Downtown Tacoma.

Why Fox Island is so Great

Fox Island is quintessential northwest living. Many homes on the outer edges of the island have incredible views of Mt Rainier or the Olympics as well as the water, while homes on the inner part of the island have privacy, property, and a rural feeling. No matter where you live on the island, access to fishing, boating, or a walk on the water is available to everyone.

What the Neighbors are Saying

We asked Fox Island residents to tell us about their neighborhood, and here’s what they had to say:

Awesome place to raise a family! Great schools, small town feel but lots of shopping and restaurants (more on the way!), beautiful beaches, state parks, and lots of options for living (acreage, waterfront, to urban style)!


Although its not nearly as much of a small town these days, Gig Harbor is still appreciated for its beautiful scenery, and larger, wooded parcels of land. In recent years many restaurants have opened and improvements have been made to the public spaces and parks.
