Hammersley Inlet indents the W shore of the sound about 1 mile N of the W end of Squaxin Passage. It is about 6 miles long, expanding at its head into Oakland Bay, which is 3.5 miles long in a NE direction. The inlet is obstructed by shoals, particularly at its mouth, where there is an extensive bar. The rocky shoals have been partly removed. The channel, marked by lights on Libby Point and Church Point has a controlling depth of about 8 feet to the town of Shelton on Oakland Bay.
Shelton is at the head of the inlet.
