Dyes Inlet

Dyes Inlet is an inlet on the Kitsap Peninsula in western Washington State, USA. Silverdale, WA is located on the north shore of the inlet and has a marina, waterfront park, boat ramp, and boardwalk. The west shoreline is part of Chico, WA and the east shoreline is Tracyton, WA. Dyes Inlet is connected to Port Orchard via the Port Washington Narrows, Port Washington being an earlier name for the inlet. It was named for John W. W. Dyes, a taxidermist with the Wilkes Expedition of 1841. Chico Creek and Clear Creek are the major fresh waterways that drain into the inlet. Both creeks have heavy salmon runs during the fall.

Dyes Inlet also plays host to the very popular UL Hydro Plane races each summer.
