Obstruction Island

A private paradise on a 216 acre island….

Obstruction Island offers one of the most ideal lifestyles in the islands of the San Juan Archipelago. The unique development design creating a 70 acre common area in the center and 48 waterfront lots around the perimeter insure both privacy for the property owners and an abundance of unspoiled natural beauty for wildlife and exploration.


Three community docks make accessing the island easy by private boat or water taxi from Anacortes on Fidalgo Island or Orcas Island.

Primarily a community of vacation homes, Obstruction Island is the quiet getaway that many Seattle professionals and retirees seek. Located just a short distance from Lieberhaven on Orcas Island, islanders with a small boat can have access to all that the bigger island has to offer including grocery stores, galleries, contractors and tradespeople, shopping, cultural events and restaurants.

Obstruction Island offers the best of both worlds!

The island has power, DSL and a private water system. There are no gas-powered vehicles but electric golf carts can be used on a limited basis.
