A not-for-profit, all-volunteer print newspaper, the Tide comes out every month except January and August. Our mission statement: “The Guemes Tide is published to connect, inform, amuse, serve, and inspire our island community.”

Subscriptions are $20 a year (10 issues). To subscribe, renew, change your address, or ask a subscription question, please visit our subscriptions page. Single copies are also available for $2.25 each at the Guemes Island Library, the DIGS Kitchen food truck, and the Guemes Island Resort.

You’ll find free downloadable back issues in PDF format on our archives page.
