Reviews for Browns Bay Marina
Perfect for Seymour Narrows, 2015-08-30
Captain: , Tacoma, WA (205)

Just before or just after transiting Seymour Narrows, a great spot and friendly people. Have stayed at this marina several times and never saw (or felt) a cruise ship. Very friendly and accomodating staff. On one stop, we were having a minor mechanical problem needing some attention and were not going to make the slack at Seymour. They would not charge us for overnight moorage as we were "under repair." Will permit temporary tie ups waiting for slack. Some of the (if not the) best fuel prices in BC.

Airborne at Brown's Bay, 2013-02-21
Captain: , Newport Beach, CA (360)

One July evening, we stopped at Brown's Bay, figuring it'd be easy to time the turn at Seymour Narrows. Had a nice dinner at the restaurant at the marina. Seemed like a great little place... that is until about 1 a.m. when we were thrown, literally, out of our bunks by the huge cruise ship wake washing across the narrow channel... and then the wake bounced off the sea wall and we're airborne again... this happened every twenty minutes for about two hours until the ships all made it through the Narrows. If the ships aren't running it's a three-star stop... if they're running... you'd better tie yourself in your bunk...
