Hoodsport was first settled by ship captain, G. K. Robbins, who logged and farmed this area's wealth of natural resources. Today, his legacy lives on in Hama Hama Oyster Company, owned and operated by his descendants, and an obligatory stop on any oyster lover's journey. Nearby, among plumose anemones, wolf eels, and giant pacific octopus, SCUBA enthusiasts from all over the world discover the diving mecca near Sound Rock. Further inland, the unparalleled natural beauty of Lake Cushman is a short hop, skip and a plunge from the Skokomish River.
