About


One of the most popular boating destinations in Puget Sound, the Port of Poulsbo is located in the heart of downtown Poulsbo – also known as “Little Norway”. There are many restaurants to choose from, several of which offer fine dining. There are a multitude of specialty shops and galleries all within a block of the marina. With 5 micro-breweries in town, Poulsbo is sure to cater to any taste. If that is not enticing enough, Poulsbo also has one of the last remaining Marina exchanges in the PNW! Then, when you are finished touring the town, enjoyed some entertainment at several establishments offering live music, including award winning musicals at the Jewel Box Theatre. Visiting boaters will enjoy a clean, well run marina. This Washington Clean Marina facility boasts a new GFCI protected electrical system, which means that it is one of the safest marinas in Puget Sound. Want to know if your boat stands up to GFCI test? Go to Poulsbo and find out. But, be prepared to run your generator just in case. Poulsbo features several great festivals throughout the year, most of which are located in the waterfront park next to the marina. Visit for the weekend and take part in Viking Festival, 3rd of July Fireworks or the Poulsbo Arts Festival. Call for more information, you'll be glad you did!

Approach


The main entrance to the guest moorage docks (E and F dock) are at the north end of the marina. When you come around the big breakwater, the docks will come into view. F-dock is the northern most dock. Even numbered slips are on the south side of the docks, and odds on the north side. The fuel dock and pump-out facility is located on the south side of E-dock, near shore.

It’s a beautiful marina. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Excellent facilities. They get a three because 1) I was a 36’ LOA in a 30’ slip. Make for an awkward means to get on and off my boat. 2). No shore power due to the high standards by which the marina operates. So I was on generator the whole weekend.

Service was friendly, lots of staff around. We had no problems with power, though others did, which has something to do with the newer GFCI’s the marina installed.

We had a gret stay because the staff helped us during a real time of need. We lost an engine and couldn't get into or slip. The staff came just in time to pull us in. Thank to everyone for your help. Ed and Lois on Bula Bula.

Office was able to move us to another slip, as someone else was tied up in the slip we were originally assigned. Amenities were all good. No issues with shore power. Nice shops and plenty of restaurants nearby. Great weather too. Fun time!

There has been a perpetual power problem that has plagued the marina for years. There was an attempt to apparently upgrade last year but that has clearly fallen short. I am 50 amp but can split to 30 amp and after trying several power stations gave up. Neighbors came by and shared the exact same experience and candidly they were curious if i was able to figure it out and get service. The frustration is having the expectation of power as a paying marina guest. Beautiful marina and people just do not expect reliable power.

Fantastic overnight getaway from Seattle. Only two hours (on a slow boat) from Seattle. Great little town with lots of fun shops, restaurants and things to do. Fun marina with great people. Must visit if you haven’t been yet!

We always have a great time in Poulsbo. However, the dock power continues to be an issue with the Port. We plugged in and we always have power, but the plug was loose, the screws were loose. We tighten them and we were fine.

I had to cancel, which I did more than 24 hours in advance. I think the credit voucher system is a total rip off. Hotels DO provide refunds if the room is cancelled up to the day before your stay. To expect boaters to keep track of a piece of paper - the credit voucher - for a year in order to get credit is unreasonable and ridiculous. You should have better customer service and provide full refunds up to a reasonable advance notice, just like all other marinas in the area. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Marina Response:
Mr. Roth, thank you for sharing your perspective. I'm sorry you had such a disappointing experience. It is certainly not our intention to make things difficult for our customers. As a result, we will be re-evaluating our cancellation policy to see where we can make some positive changes for the future.

Poulsbo Marina is a great, low key get away. The Scandivanian town has great shops and restaurants. Good bakery and coffee shops. If you need marine supplies the marine store is good. Staff are friendly and helpful. The cons: wifi is terrible and the washroom facilities are pretty basic. Take your flip flops into the shower.

Horrible. 5 boats in our club could not get power!! Marina blamed our boats at first. They knew this was a lie. Staff would not admit their wiring problems. Locals all knew!!! Bad Bad Bad To hell with Poulsbo

Marina Response:
The Poulsbo Marina's new GFCI protected shore power system is, and has always been, working exactly as it should. The new GFCI (30mA) standard is very sensitive to power leakage, which can be frustrating for some boat owners. At the time of this review, which was very soon after the dock power was upgraded, not all of the various reasons for failed connections were known. It is now known that any failed attempt to connect to a GFCI protected system is due to an issue on the boat, whether it be faulty wiring , or a timing issue with the inverter. To say that marina staff lied is not only inaccurate, it is also unfair. Marina staff has gone above the call of duty to assist boaters visiting Poulsbo.

Great destination but don't make reservations on-line or pay for moorage in advance. A friend had engine problems on the way in and the Port refused to refund or rain check them. Unfriendly staff, unorganized and doesn't understand boaters needs.

They need to be better about putting sailboats on F dock when there are minus tides. No fun seeing sailboats listing. We were also in mud. Not much help with docking like other marinas. We helped 12 + boats tie up in the wind.

It was a very busy weekend with the Viking Festival . We were assigned a slip with another boat that had a pretty wide beam as well. We were within inches at the most and the way I had to bring my boat forward to avoid scraping on the stern caused by bow edge to rub on the dock as well. I would recommend talking with the marina about the width of your boat in advance

My wife and I have made Poulsbo a regular stop now, at least twice a month. The marina is clean and the dock staff are always friendly. I would highly recommend this marina, however I want to keep it quiet so I will always have a dock space available. :-) Kudos to the Poulsbo staff! John Howgate
