White glove service! A personal touch of service every step of the way - from the moment we reached the dock to the moment we departed. The staff was very friendly and incredibly helpful. The staff was even able to accommodate our late dock side pump out request. We look forward to coming back!

Arrived with another 200+ Ranger and Cutwater boats. Dock crew were waiting and assisted as needed. Throughout our stay, staff were easily available and friendly.

Our favorite marina! Staff and services are plentiful and the area is beautiful. We always feel well attended to whenever we're there. And the marina is convenient to other locations. Thanks, Roche folks, for another wonderful stay!

Very beautiful and protected location. Staff very helpful though not equally as friendly. Throwback to another era with Disney-like experience. Restaurants were really good. Showers were lacking and need some updating. However I’d definitely go there again because if it’s overall charm.

Roche Harbor is a throwback to the days of family gatherings and traditions. There’s comfort in the continuity of services, food and attention to details that the entire staff exhibits. In this time of staffing shortages and struggles with supply chains, Roche pulled off a stunning “back to normal” vacation experience. We can’t wait to return next year!

Tremendous, helpful and courteous staff! Love the uniforms so it's easy to identify staff members from visitors. Love the complimentary pump outs. Pretty pricey, especially for visiting Canadian boaters, but there is no question about the quality of the resort, the services provided, or the staff support.

Beautiful facility in protected harbor. Hailed the marina on VHF on arrival in the harbor and was directed to slip. Dock hands helped with our arrival and mobile pump-out was included in the cost of the stay, which was expensive! A reasonable grocery store is on-site, plus some other tourist shops and stalls plus a couple of eating options available (45 min wait for the bar and grill on a Monday at 6:30). A few walking options on shore and great for megayacht watching!

Been Visiting Roche Harbor for years, the dock crew and staff are still awesome, however the vibe of Roche is dead. No more live music to cap off the day post Covid is very disappointing and there appears to be no logical answer other than the local home owners don't like the noise. Sadly we will probably skip Roche next year as a planned stop. Bring back the music and vibe. prices keep going up and the uniqueness and vibe of the location are going down, not a great model to ensure long-term success.

Roche Harbor is the best marina in the entire PNW! Great staff, facilities, restaurants, store and location! We love to visit as often as possible.

Roche Harbor is always a great experience. Staff is friendly and always willing to help. Watching the whole marina stop for colors at night is unique experience. This is a stop we always look forward to each year to re-provision and people watch.

Dear Roche Harbor Staff, From the moment we arrived at Roche Harbor Marina we were warmly welcomed and received docking assistance from capable staff throughout our two-night three-day stay. All our needs were exceeded by staff who answered our questions, emptied tanks, and helped us arrange scheduling for another visit to Roche in two weeks (during your busy season). We also enjoyed eating out. McMillin's Restaurant has excellent food and wonderful staff. And breakfasts at the cafe helped make us feel like we were all on vacation, too. My wife and I were thrilled that we were assigned Juliet 1 a + b as that slip is just a short walk for our elderly parents to get to all the shore activities. Thank you Roche Harbor for everything you do! We're looking forward to our next visit. From all of us aboard the Independence 2.

There is no question that this is a BEAUTIFUL location! And the staff and amenities cannot be beat … seriously! The only draw back of Roche in the summer is that it’s a bit of a zoo of “see and be seen” folks. You know the type - they have gorgeous boats that they use less than 20 hrs a year, and … half of those hours are spent coming to sit at a dock at Roche. Whatever, you do you.

Right off the bat, the dock service crew are the very best in the business. Of all the places, marinas, harbors that we've stayed, the crew at Roche are by far the best. Facilities are fantastic, restaurant is superb. A pleasure to stay here

Roche Harbor is amazing -- from our first radio in, we were greeted at our slip, got a free pump out, walked around the village and drove around the marina. It has everything and feels like the place you envisioned when you bought a boat. the help was amazing, super friendly young adults. the bathrooms got pretty beat up after a morning, so i hope they can improve housekeeping. quarters for showers, not my favorite "feature," but not a deal breaker, i suppose. cant wait to return

Roche Harbor is a wonderful place to stay. I love how they have lots of dock staff to help you dock and make sure the marina runs smooth. The food options here are excellent. They have a well stocked store. The history is entertaining and contributes to the atmosphere. Really cool flag ceremonies in the evenings including a cannon shot. Definitely coming back here again.

Roche Harbor is an excellent marina. We made reservations for a slip several days in advance and were greeted professionally when we arrived at the marina. The dock staff was polite and helpful getting tied up at our slip. THE facilities are good with great food and service. The town is a fun place to visit and easy to get around the island. This is definitely a place to stop in the San Juans.

This is one of the best marina's in the PNW. I'd like to send quite a few others there for some lessons in how to run a proper marina. The staff are great, the young folks that work the docks are friendly and extremely helpful, everything is clean and tidy, the food is great and the location is awesome. We've stayed many times and always enjoy it so much. Looking forward to our next trip.

We had a wonderful Memorial Day stay at the Roche Harbor Marina. The dock-hands were “Johnny on the spot” and offered great assistance. The town has cute shopping, and hiking trials within walking distance. The sunsets are amazing as is the breakfast at the Lime Kiln restaurant! We’ll definitely be back.

This is one of the nicest Marinas out there. The staff is amazing, the service are great, the docks are in good condition, the slips are beamy and it's a really nice part of the world. I love coming up to stay here. If I had one piece of feedback, it's keep the fuel dock open a tiny bit later. I like to get fuel when I arrive so I don't have to worry about it when I want to head out.

Marina Response:
Thank you so much! So glad you had a wonderful stay! Starting this weekend the fuel dock will be open until 6pm and then mid June will be open until 7pm! Just a little short staffed right now but will be getting more staff this weekend :) Hope to see you guys again this season!

Roche Harbor is one of my favorite marina destination in the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands. The docks are wide, clean and not steep at low tide! But, best of all is the warm welcome we always get from the dock attendants like Melissa and Morgan. Very friendly and extremely helpful. They just never say no to anything! Shore side activities and shops are great and the food fare is top notch. Rounding out our day, we look forward to the Colors Ceremony at sunset.

Great place to stay. Everyone was courteous and very helpful. My only complaint is that the store opens late and closes early. After going out fishing all day we could not buy any ice to put on our fish, but the folks at the hotel were great, they gave us some ice, no charge, so we could ice down our fish! Now that is a courtesy you just don’t find anymore . Can’t wait to go back. We really enjoy it there. We try to get up there at least 2 or 3 times a year weather we are fishing or just out boating as a family.

Top notch marina, professionally and courteously run. Dock hands that are quick to help with a smile. Lots of activities to enjoy here. Just don't check customs here as the agents are always jerks that enjoy hassling boaters...go to Friday Harbor.

Living in the PNW, we love to explore marinas and decompress from our everyday life. Roche Harbor is one of our all time favorites! The guest services at the marina is outstanding! They meet you at your slip and help you dock. Take any garbage you may have acquired during your trip to the Marina and help with anything you may need to know about when arriving. They have great restaurants and a store to pick up things you may need while there (like...wine!). The Madrona Bar and Grill is our fav to get great seafood! The lime Kiln Cafe has great breakfasts, but get there early, you'll have to stand in line! The showers/restrooms are very well maintained and are handy if you can't shower up on your vessel. Lots of places to explore while the like the Mausoleum, a great place to see history and for photo shoots. Relaxing on the back of our 28ft Searay with snacks and cocktails in the evening and talking with people docked around us is one of the fun things we love to do. You get to meet some great Boat-people! The Resort at Roche Harbor is also fantastic if you can't stay on your boat. They cater to your delights and make you feel like a VIP! The Color Guard to close the day is a Roche harbor tradition. It's fun to watch. Boats in the Harbor all participate by honking their horns. Nice way to involve the whole boating community. I can't say enough great things about Roche Harbor. We always try to visit 2 to 3 times a year!
