Reviews for Boston Harbor Marina
Great little neighborhood marina!, 2013-12-04
Captain: , Boston Harbor (20)

Nothing fancy here but great service, food, fuel doc, and a homey feel.

Fuel near the State Capitol, 2013-04-11
Captain: , Sequim, WA (130)

We have stopped here for fuel since it is the only fuel stop convenient to Olympia. The fueling and payment transaction wasquick and easy. We had no trouble with shallowing. My rating does not attempt to categorize the full marina facilities.

A wanderfull stop, 2013-04-09
Captain: , Port Orchard Marina (124)

Stopped here a couple of times. It can be tricky getting into the fuel dock at extra low tide, but I did make it. Overall great place to travel to.

Great little Marnia .., 2012-03-17
Captain: , Boston Harbor (19)

Has its own charm.Breakfast on the dock in the summer is worth the stop. The store Has a good supply of WIne and Beer plus what ever else you might need. Only fule dock in the areia

Great spot to spend a few hours or a night, 2011-04-15
Captain: , Seattle (373)

Traffic goes right by this marina, so the only reason this is not a 5 star is because of the more than occasional wake rolling through. That said, the staff are helpful, the store sells all you need including foods you can eat on their large deck while enjoying wine or beer from the store, their wifi seems pretty strong, and you can even rent kayaks if you have a mind for small adventures

This is a wonderful little laid back spot in the south sound. Nothing fancy but the store has an eclectic array of snacks, beverages, clothing, gifts and boating supplies. They serve breakfast on the docks on weekends and many locals come around to socialize. Lots of kids and dogs and colorful characters. Kayak and small boat rentals draw folks from the Olympia area. Power, fuel, bathrooms, but no showers or laundry. Anchoring is possible if the small guest dock is full.

Great store, 2007-08-26

The store at Boston Harbor is just great. They've got an excellent selection of gourmet sandwiches like their smoked salmon. You can sit out on the deck watch the comings and goings at the marina and enjoy a soft drink or beer.
