A great marina for every kind of boat, from kayaks to super yachts. This Puget Sound favorite is widely regarded as the premier boating and sailing center of the Northwest - no waiting for the locks or bridges and the perfect location for an easy getaway, spectacular views and quiet relaxation.
We found the marina to be clean and well maintained. The guest moorage slips were plenty wide enough as were the finger piers. West Marine is a short walk past the south end of the marina. Ray's is close if you want a nicer, sit down restaurant, otherwise it is a bit a hike into Ballard itself where there are a number of places to eat as well as repair shops for outboard motors. We were able to sub lease a slip for two weeks while we waited for parts and weather. We found the restroom facility clean and functional. Showers take quarters.
