Whidbey Island in Washington state is always calling itself the "longest island in the United States", or "the longest island in the continental United States", or, sometimes, "the longest saltwater-surrounded island in the continental United States". This phrase and its variations are so often repeated that most Washingtonians repeat it as if it were gospel.

However, these claims are totally unsupportable.
Length is a subjective concept, and the lengths given are approximate. If an island is long, narrow, and straight, length is easy to determine. For rounded islands, the longest possible distance between opposite shores was used. For bent or crooked islands, like Whidbey, length was calculated by drawing a bent line along the island's main axis from end to end. Thus, Whidbey's length in the following chart could be considered a liberal estimate, since a straight line across it would result in a lower number.
