A Private Island...

...just ten minutes (5.5 miles) from the city of Gig Harbor, Raft Island is located on the Puget Sound with spectacular sunsets and views of Henderson Bay, the Olympic Mountains, and Cutts Island or "Deadmans" (pictured above). Connected to the mainland by a new, modern concrete bridge (which replaced the 788-foot timber bridge in 2014), there are approximately 200 homes on 160 acres.  Islanders enjoy two community beaches, a boatlaunch, park areas and a tennis court.  The Island is managed by the Raft Island Improvement Association (RIIA) and an Island Manager.


Road drainage work is under way.


Ballot results from the March 20 Special Roads Meeting

The island voted on the proposal to approve the expense and paving of Maple and Cedar Lanes.
The results were: YES: 106 NO: 29
The ballot measure passed and Maple and Cedar lanes will be repaved with all the other roads on the island.

Thank you to all who participated.

See the current Newletter for more information about the upcoming road renovation project, and the roadside drainage project that preceeds it.

  • Break-ins on the island are an unfortunate fact of life. It is important to take every precaution to prevent theft and burglary. Keep doors locked and garage doors closed, even during the daylight hours!


Other policies (such as boat launch, parks and recrecation, parking and street maintenance) can be found on the Community page.
