Immerse yourself in our community, our unique island culture and rich heritage. Connect with nature and deepen your love of the outdoors.
Vashon Island is a down home place just a twenty-minute ferry ride from the uptown world. Sustainable Tourism on Vashon is dedicated to making your time here not only unforgettable but enlightening as well.
STOV guides you toward programs and activities that represent the best kind of tourism. Tourism that sustains the environment instead of exploiting it. Tourism that supports ecological awareness, small farm viability, respect for our historical roots, our tradition as an artists’ community and vigorous, healthful living for all residents and visitors alike.
At STOV we believe in protecting our universal island Earth and our precious island home. We know we must do this one step at a time. We, the friendly welcoming people of Vashon and Maury Islands, invite you to join your steps with ours and walk this wondrous journey with us.
