Reviews for Kanaka Public Visitors Wharf
Great place for a stop-over and reprovision. , 2016-08-04
Captain: , Gig Harbor, WA (225)

This is a wonderful place to stay if you a chance to stretch your legs, visit some art galleries, restock your ship's store, or just get a nice meal. There is a grocery a block from the dock, an amazing hardware store where can buy anything from bed linnen to holding tank treatment and any tool that you may have dropped overboard. The dock provides wifi with moorage that works great, even at the outer Kanaka dock.
The only doensides are the warfingers office (and washrooms and garbage) are a ways away. They are located at the head of the Centenial Wharf South of the Grace Island spit. Coming in a bit before noon there was only one spot left for our size and it was a bit of a tight fit and would have been challenging with a strong wind as the fairways are narrow.
I would highly recomend this spot and will be coming back in the future.



Wonderful town!, 2013-04-24
Captain: , Portland, OR (1223)

We enjoy the town so much, great place to provision. Kanaka dock is nice for a 2hr stop to provision, then anchor out. And the Coast Guard dock (where the float planes are) is also available for overnight stays (same $1/ft), or same free 2hr during the day.



Enjoyable town, 2012-10-17
Captain: , Bozeman, MT (740)

Fun little town to explore, Kanaka is a good location and easy to access all that Ganges has to offer. Pretty touristy, but sometimes that's ok.



Convenient to Town Center, 2012-07-08
Captain: , Port Angeles, WA (110)

New floats with power and water. Pay at self pay station or harbormaster's office. (Shows near office) Location is the closest to the center of town. WiFi signals may be available from nearby cafes. Great spot to watch the seaplanes land and take off.
