    Why do I sense there might be some history behind that name? Deception Pass is the sort of name that could make me nervous, looking at a nautical chart.

      The current there can go very fast when the tide is running. Also it is not the northwest passage, though it is a passage.

      George Vancouver gave it the name “Deception” because it had misled him into thinking Whidbey Island was a peninsula. “
