Reviews for Blind Channel Resort
Nice Layover, 2016-07-30
Captain: , Liberty Bay Washington (400)

7/15/16. Stopped here during our cruise from Desolation to the Broughtons. Was planning on anchoring but was windy so decided to try Blind Channel. Called in on VHF and they still had a couple of slips open. It can be a challenge with the wind and a constant current but managed to get in. Nice little store and restaurant, but pricy. Probably the last chance of getting decent water before heading north.



Just What We Needed, 2014-09-09
Captain: , Olalla WA (412)

Ready for laundry (good here) and a store with good provisions, this was a great stop. Pricey food and store, but dockage seemed fair. Good electricity and docks. Scenic, with friendly staff. Laundry lots less expensive than places further north in Broughton Islands.



A Must Stop Place, 2014-07-23
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

A quality run resort in a great location on your way north or returning south. This is a quality family run operation that has nearly everything you might want. Excellent food in the restaurant, well stocked store, and fuel dock. It's not cheap, but the quality is good. Food in the restaurant is outstanding. Watch the current coming in.



Nice and quiet, 2014-05-19
Captain: , Portland, OR (80)

Got here and were the second boat tied to the dock this early in the season. Very helpful folks. Restaurant wasn't open yet. Too bad. Heard nothing but great raves from the two cruisers that cam in later that day.

Water and power were fine. Fuel was good. The short trails were a nice break. They said a black and a brown bear came visiting this past week. So walk with caution as they say.

Good stop.will hit them again on the way back.



Great stop on the way back from points north, 2013-01-05
Captain: , Seattle (690)

We stopped here after a long day back down the Johnstone Strait, transiting Whirlpool and Green Point Rapids. Called ahead about an hour out and they had a spot for us. Very nice facilities, staff met us on the dock, easy access to 50 Amp power and water. Convenient laundry facilities and some nice, easy hikes next to the property. We had lunch on the patio, and while a bit pricey, very good. A worthwhile stop.



Strategic and pleasant stop, 2013-01-03
Captain: , Anacortes, WA (10)

Between the rapids, great food, good water and fuel, good store.



Blind Channel, 2011-01-26
Captain: , Anacortes, WA (282)

Blind Channel Resort is a small but well known destination. There is a small convenience store, fuel dock and restaurant. The restaurant is expensive, but serves outstanding food.
Visiting boats should understand that Blind Channel, like many remote marinas, is a family business with a short season. The expense of bringing in supplies is high. There are upcharges here for everything, including trash disposal, but this is a plesant, well run facility.



A good stop on the way to the Broughtons, 2010-12-24
Captain: , Sequim, WA (676)

We had a nice dinner there on our Anniversary. Wish the 30 year old bottle of wine had aged as well as my lovely wife!



First class establishment, 2010-08-19
Captain: , Nanaimo, BC Canada (505)

I first stopped here in 1986. The same family has run this remote marina now for three generations. Although prices might be considered high, the value for dollar spent is the best in the area.



Went back for more, 2009-12-10
Captain: , Nanoose Bay, BC (50)

We stayed overnight here in July 09, and stopped in again for showers and supplies later on. We had been warned that tidal currents make this a difficult entry, but we had no problems at any time. Very friendly, very well stocked, great fresh bread which appears around 4PM at the store.



Blind Channel, 2007-07-28
Captain: , Olympia (1435)

Store is stocked and liquor is available. Current really runs through the marina - be careful when docking. Store owner has a bit of an attitude and can be unfriendly towards small and medium sized boaters.



Blind Channel Marina and Resort, 2007-03-01
Captain: , LaConner WA (314)

This marina and resort is the neatest, cleanest place you will find in all of the US and Canada. There is a bit of current at times on the dock, which one of the cruising guides has criticised, but it seems nothing to worry about. The bay directly across the channel would provide good anchorage too.
