Steamboat Island is an island in southern Puget Sound. Founded in 1909, Steamboat Island was named by local settlers who thought the island resembled a steamboat.[2] Demographically it is mostly Caucasian and made of mostly two person households.[3]

Steamboat Island lies at the northern end of a peninsula known locally as the "Steamboat Peninsula". The peninsula and island is contained within the Griffin School District and is served by the Griffin Fire Department #13 and is also known locally as the "Griffin area" of Thurston County, Washington.
