The Deception Pass Bridge has a long and interesting history. It is a bridge that connects Whidbey Island to Fidalgo Island and it has become a popular place for photographers to get some great shots of Puget Sound.
Travelers from one island to the other had to signal for the ferry and sit back and wait for their ride over the pass. The waterway that is crossed in this area is actually a very deep and rough channel that was once charted as a small bay. That is how the area got the name Deception Pass.
The bridge was built between 1934 and 1935 and became a historic landmark in 1982. It is a spectacular two pass bridge that goes over Deception Pass and Canoe Pass.
