The Port’s Guest Dock is located all along the inside of the break-water, which accommodates 49 guest slips ranging from 20 feet to 50 feet. In addition, we can accommodate larger vessels up to 80 feet at our ‘linear tie’ located at the very end of the Guest Dock. All guest dock slips are reservable with at least a 24-hours advance notice, and we can begin taking reservations as early as one year in advance.
Slip was reserved as promised. Marina staff were welcoming. Summer concert in park was a bonus.
The marina is very clean. The Harbor Master was friendly and came and introduced himself.
I made my first visit to Kingston Marina via my boat on Monday afternoon July 16. I had earlier made a reservation and received back an assigned slip. Getting an assigned slip ahead of arrival is unique for area marinas and I welcomed that. However, I encountered great confusion upon entering the marina as to where my assigned slip was to be found. I had downloaded the dock chart to my smart phone, but it lacked clear information. Upon entering the marina and encountering no explicit directional signage I did a slow speed tight u-turn just off dock C and immediately ran aground, despite being well within all nav buoys. I was able to twist and get free and then exited the marina. I called the marina office and got confusing directions but got the idea that I should proceed with the breakwater to starboard. Later I learned that another sailboat from my club (Seattle Sailing Club) had also run aground upon entering the marina. No doubt the low tides were the culprit. But it’s most unacceptable for insufficient depths to be un-marketed in the navigation paths inside a marina! Additionally your marina map and signage is grossly insufficient. A guest boat entering a marina should be able to immediately understand from abundantly clear signs what direction to go for “guest mooring”, “fuel”, and “pump out”. You should send a link along with confirmed reservations to a map with color coded “GUEST MOORING” and the other critical information. It does not need to show where trucks are parked or any other information not useful to arriving boaters.
Nice marina, Saturday market was fun, plenty of other shops/restaurants nearby too.
Great! marina staff are super friendly and helpful. Nice little town with enough to keep you busy.
Great marina, cute town, has everything you need, concert in the park and farmers market were nice. Our slip was taken when we arrived, so we took one 2 down and it turned out to be fine, not sure what happened but the office was glad that we took that one instead, we think a boat grabbed the wrong slip. No issues at all and very happy with our stay!
Very cute marina! The facilities were clean and nice. The staff was very friendly and we loved the free concert in the cove! The slips are well protected by the breakwater wall and the marina is very peaceful!
Great weather, awesome festival and great staff. Ray was the most helpful and friendly guy we met. He helped us with a pjmpoout and we had great conversation. Good times!
Staff was waiting at the slip to assist me. Very friendly and helpful. Nice facilities, close to nice stores and restaurants and groceries a short walk away. Liked it enough to stay an extra day.
