Welcome to Naval Magazine Indian Island

On behalf of Commanding Officer Cmdr. Donald Emerson, welcome to the website for Naval Magazine Indian Island!

Installation information 

Naval Magazine Indian Island is located near Port Hadlock in Jefferson County, Washington, which is across Puget Sound from Whidbey Island and Seattle. The installation is home to the U.S. Navy’s only deep-water ammunition port on the West Coast and the Department of Defense’s largest conventional ordnance storage site on the West Coast. Indian Island provides munitions support to Navy, Joint and Allied vessels while emphasizing safety, accuracy and efficiency.

The 2,700-acre island hosts a wealth of cultural and natural resources, including several Native-American archeological sites, historical pioneer homestead sites and WWII-era buildings. The island is also home to a wide diversity of wildlife species, including 10 established bald eagles nesting sites, several hundred deer, coyotes, otters, and an occasional cougar.

Naval Magazine Indian Island is a controlled access installation. Access is limited to authorized military personnel and Department of Defense civilian employees who have a valid Common Access Card (CAC) and either a Base Authorization and Visit Request (BAVR) badge or a Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) badge that demonstrates the higher level of access credentials required for NMII.
