Island County Tourism Committee

We’re a county-wide board of 18 people dedicated to promoting tourism throughout Whidbey and Camano Islands. We meet monthly. We are 100% funded by 2% lodging taxes and do not award grants ourselves, but rather oversee a comprehensive marketing and public relations program.
We advertise, work with media, do content marketing, manage a website and social media platforms, collaborate with regional and state tourism partners and more– all to support the islands. When you see ads promoting both Whidbey and Camano islands, that’s us.
If you see a story in print about us, chances are good we worked with the writer. If you see a film or TV commercial shot here, we likely helped that producer show off our scenic beauty with minimal disruption. We also offer workshops and training and will be announcing dates soon for out next one featuring media relations and content marketing.
