Naval Air Station...
Whidbey Island NAS is located in the northwest corner of Washington State, 90 miles north of Seattle. Within close proximity to the San Juan Islands and the Cascade and Olympic mountains, Whidbey Island is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Fishing, hunting, hiking, sailing, canoeing, camping and bike riding are all prevalent in this spectacular rural area with its rocky beaches and rolling hills.
Naval Air Station Whidbey is comprised of two bases five miles apart: the Seaplane Base and the Naval Air Station (also known as Ault Field.) Located on the western shore of the island, the Air Station contains most of the military activities. The Seaplane Base is on the eastern shore at the edge of the town of Oak Harbor.
