Reviews for Bainbridge Island City Dock
Your money's worth, 2017-07-17
Captain: , Portland Oregon (270)

You get your money's worth here. 50 cents per foot for 24 hours. Meaning, arrive at 5p, leave at 5p the next day. Refreshing change from everywhere else that make you vacate by noon. Construction starts in September on expanded city dock. Completion spring 2018.

things are changing, 2016-08-03
Captain: , everett, wa (355)

Restrooms with flush toilets, outdoor showers, and one indoor shower that needs a code to enter are now at the head of the dock. the park is closed for heavy construction. Concrete docks are an improvement from last time we visited. still no power or water but only $0.50 per foot makes it a bargain. We had pleasant visits with people on the dock. plenty of dock space today.

Easy choice for quick stay. , 2015-08-17
Captain: , Edmonton (40)

Initially moored at a buoy but eventually moved in to the main dock once a spot opened. Tami is very helpful, friendly and accommodating which makes it that much easier to figure out what to do and where to go. Town centre is close by with lots of shops and eateries with easy access. I recommend the Thai restaurant where the owner is MORE than accommodating for any special requests you may have and he food is great.

New applicants to the Open Water Marina, 2014-10-08
Captain: , Bainbridge Island (92)

It has been great seeing more visitors anchoring and using the day use buoys. There is no power or water at the dock. Moorage includes free use of the shower. The Open Water Marina has 8 tenants and is accepting applications in for full time, one year residency on buoys.

Excellent ramp and good dock, 2014-10-08
Captain: , PORT LUDLOW (67)

Enjoyed launching and recovering at this ramp on Sunday 10/5. No power at the dock if one is staying for a while and looking for a battery top-off. Nice facility

Great location, 2014-09-17
Captain: , Seattle (195)

As mentioned this is a great alternative to anchoring. Don't expect much otherwise. No power or water and lots of interesting characters coming and going by boat and foot. One block from the main grocery. We were going to use the showers onshore but they were very dirty so we skipped it. The onshore bathrooms were clean though.

Good alternative to anchoring, 2010-04-12
Captain: , Everett, WA (939)

We anchor out 90% of the time, but in Eagle Harbor we tied up to the linear moorage and the city dock, as it is just so crowded here even in the off-season. The linear moorage was easy to tie up to, although you do have to go ashore to pay. The city dock is the better alternative if there is room, but be sure to check your depth versus what it will be at low tide, as it gets shallow for most sailboats 1/3 of the way toward land. We did have to get used to people constantly walking past our boat, but the price was decent, and it quieted down after sunset. Not sure how to get the codes for the bathrooms, but they are included in the mooring fee. The price went up recently, so you might want to check how much it is now compared to some of the nearby marinas that have power and water. City Dock has neither. There is TONS ashore, groceries, ice cream, restaurants, shopping, book stores, and a playground.

Nice City Dock, 2007-09-23
Captain: , Olympia (1435)

Anchoring out in Eagle Harbor can be tough because of all the other boats that are anchored out. But once you find a spot the city dock is a great place to tie up your dingy and come ashore. Easy, short walks to shops, stores, and restaurants.
