Why are you asking for my review? I am a permanent moorage customer. Asking for my review of a stay from 8 months ago is total nonsense. The 5 stars goes to Oak Harbor's staff. On the other hand Dodkwa is a complete PITA.

Eclectic old marina run by nice people. City within walking distance. Layed out well in a pretty bay and out of the tourist highway to the San Juans. Downtown is uncrowded with a different kind of charm. Good selections of coffee shops and restaurants. Docks are old but serviceable and safe.

Dock staff was and always has been excellent however, the derelict marina host lady on the house boat was drunk, baligerent and very rude. The pirate guy her husband was fine but she was super drunk and picking fights with my guests and other marina guests. I will attend next year but do not want to be anywhere near the "Sea Hagg"!

I know you can't change the design of the boat launch but it is poor. The slope is too shallow which requires backing the truck into the saltwater. My tires were at least 6" deep. I saw a couple of people brought there own hose to wash down their rigs. The other issue is the location of the pilings. They are outside the float making it an issue with maneuvering the boat around the pilings and complicates bringing the boat into the float. Our dock space was good, the porta-potty and the restroom was ,

It was ok. The entrance sign to the marina had fallen and was pointing into the water. We had to call the office as it was confusing getting into it The floating restrooms were out of order.

Weathered some gnarly weather here for a couple of nights. Quite open marina with low lying ground around and not much to look at, but reasonably protected. Grills along the dock for guest use. The guest dock is a LONG walk from shore and facilities and about 15-20 mins to town (1.75 miles to grocery stores). Local military base was practicing aircraft landings until 11pm, which were pretty noisy. Price was reasonable and the stay gave us a per-gallon discount on fuel too, which was already reasonable.

Nice guest docks that had lots of picnic tables and barbecues, but the bathrooms and laundry room are a quarter mile walk each way.

The office staff offers zero customer service. We use Dockwa when staying at Oak Harbor our assumption is that the Dockwa application process has made for less work in the office as we no longer have a need to go into the office. However, on this trip my husband was up at the top of the Marina and did not have his phone with him, he was in need of the codes for the washroom. The office staff refused to give him the codes even though he advised what slip we were in and had ID. As we were staying out on F dock this made for a very long trek back to the boat. Poor customer service from office staff that appear to be not all that busy.

We enjoy how peaceful it is on the visitor dock. This time I was confused as I could not find trash cans as i went to shore with my dogs from slip 38. That evening, I noticed some trash cans further away from shore and BBQs were being put out (maybe for a club gathering?). When I took the trash to the head of the dock, I couldn't find the garbage bins so I used a park trash can. The floating heads on the visitor dock were just OK, one needed toilet cleaning, the other was good. Nice to have our moorage covered when we filled up our fuel, as painful as that was!

Staff here are always friendly. Fuel prices are always the lowest around. Nice grassy areas and a beach for the dogs. Town is a bit of a hike but no big deal. Docks are a little run down. Watch for westerly blows and turn around in the narrow channel next to G docks before docking so you face west.

The visitor slips are about a six or seven minute walk from shore. The town is another 1.5 miles. Facilities are clean, and the shower provides hot water quickly, with good pressure. There are picnic tables every few slips on the visitor dock, and toilets found on a mini-barge tied in a slip so you don't have to hike to shore.

Would rather make reservations with staff rather than online. Online is not always available when cruising. Using dockwa does not provide timely confirmation.

Marina Response:
We are happy to take reservations over the phone, in person or through Dockwa. In the future please feel free to use which ever method suites you best. We do strive to answer Dockwa requests within two hours during business hours (7 days a week 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.) and in most cases respond within 30 minutes. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

First the good. Facilities are nice, fuel prices were great and the fellow working at the gas dock was super helpful. Now the not so good. We have a 51ft boat and were assigned the last slip on the outside which is a 40 ft slip. Normally we wouldn’t mind but there was plenty of dock space inside for a 51ft boat and there was an awful windstorm so it would have been good to be in a spot where we could tie up properly. We were still charged for a 51. To top it off the boat next to us allowed their several dogs to sh@ all over their bow and foredeck for days or longer and did not bother to clean it up. Disgusting!!!!

Marina Response:
Hello, Thank you for your kind words about the marina staff and facility. We have addressed the issue with the dog poop on the bow and foredeck of the neighboring boat and this should not be an issue in the future. The dock space that you saw inside belongs to permanent moorage tenants who were out cruising. When you arrive in the future if you have any concerns with your slip, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you the best we can.
