Three buildings from the Alaska Packers Association Cannery were moved to Semiahmoo Park in 1981, one of which now serves as the APA Museum. Artifacts from the cannery displayed in the museum tell the story of fishing and canning days gone by. The museum is operated by the Drayton Harbor Maritime Society.

Semiahmoo Park includes an extensive area of public tidelands, certainly one of the best places to go for a beach walk in Whatcom County. Check tides for best low tide times. Follow boardwalks to beach overlooks, then continue out onto the tidelands and follow the incoming tide along both sides of the spit.
