Additional info:

Approach

Open moorage on H dock is perpendicular to current flow, and when the channel is running, the current is often stronger below the surface. Look at the kelp, and be prepared to hang out on G dock until slack. Even folks with bow thrusters have problems on the outside of H.

Tide

10

Current

Strong

Tide & current additional info

Currents up to five knots may be experienced at the La Conner dock. They are very difficult to predict in the Swinomish Channel. They also vary along the length of the channel despite the fact that it appears to be a consistent channel with narrows.

Use current station named Skagit Bay, 1 mile S of Goat Island.

Reviews for La Conner Marina
Almost worth dealing with the currents, 2016-10-19
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (366)

La Conner is a great little town and the marina itself is very nice. The staff is one of the friendliest and service oriented ones we came across while we were sailing in the San Juans. Because it is located in a slough, one needs to deal with the currents that can be very strong at times. You are either limited by the limits on going during slack tide or have to fight the currents.
We really liked coming here and would have come here more ofen except for the currents.



Nice Marina, 2014-09-17
Captain: , Boise, Idaho (122)

Easy side tie to a solid dock. Nice marina personnel. Be sure to get on the inside of the float just in case someone breaks lose in the current of the channel.



Watch Your Depth, 2014-09-07
Captain: , Liberty Bay Washington (400)

Spent two nights here with a boating group. Hard to calculate when slack current will be. Not at high or low tide and the current can get quite strong at times. You will not want to leave to the south at low tide. We came out two hours after low tide and still marked 4.8 feet depth near marker #8, which is just west of Goat Island in the channel.

Nice town to spend some time in and lot's of good eating places. Don't expect any help docking your boat unless you ask for it. And the guest docks do not have any way to catch a spring line so would be hard to dock if solo.

Because of the current, shallow depths at the southern end of the channel entrance, boat wakes I cannot give it more than 3 stars.



Terrific stop on your way north or south., 2014-01-28
Captain: , Newport Beach, CA (360)

Reasonably priced with easy walking access to the historical waterfront area of La Conner. Great place to winter, I'm there now, at reasonable rates... about 60% of the cost of a Seattle marina. Staff is easy to work with. Only downside is that some of the dock boxes on the guest dock only deliver 95-100 volts.



Very easy to use facility, 2013-12-28
Captain: , Channel Islands, California (1149)

Very nice facility. Helpful and friendly staff. Convenient to everything in this wonderful small town. Power at the pedestals seemed a little low, but workable. Reasonable winter rates. Transient fees can be paid at the dock on the honor system (put it in a provided envelope and leave it in a lock box); free wifi. We'll be back again for sure.



I recommend docking inside F dock, 2013-05-11
Captain: , Mercer Island, WA (693)

Very nice marina. Best location to dock is inside F dock. F dock is the closest to the town. There is a lot of tidal current in the channel, hence my recommendation to dock inside F dock and not outside. The more south the better as the current is less there.



Bumpy overnight, 2012-11-24
Captain: , Seattle (10)

Decent moorage and rates, access to town, bathrooms, etc. was good. The comments on current are definitely relevant, and it gets bumpy at night. We were tied up on the inside of the long transient dock, and the current and passing vessels (many of which don't seem to understand what "no wake" means) meant a fair bit of movement, to the point that it was necessary to add more lines. Otherwise, decent. Debated between 3 and 4 stars: the facilities and amenities were worth 4, the physical aspects (current and wake) pushed it down a bit.



A great stop!, 2011-09-29
Captain: , Seattle, WA (312)

Good facilities run by the Port of Skagit County. Reasonable prices, free electric, free first-class showers. Easy walk to town. Town has restaurant, grocery store, boutiques and the quilt museum. The LaConnor/Mt Vernon area is the Tulip capital of the US. There are busses to Mt Vernon/Seattle and Anacortes/San Juan Islands.



La Conner Marina, 2011-01-14
Captain: , Fort Myers, Florida, USA (584)

By the time you make it here you know what the current is doing. If not sure, cruise by the fuel dock just north of the marina, there is always a current direction arrow which must be heeded, you should approach up current in most situations. The formula for predicting current direction of the channel is 50% right at best, reason being all the variables - flow from the rivers and variable conditions at Deception Pass and Anacortes make prediction tough. Current is slower on the inside of the main marina breakwaters and vanishes as you go to the inner slips. This is a good area to see the annual local Christmas ship parade. Moorage rates better than marinas to the south.



Nice Town!, 2010-07-17
Captain: , Everett, WA (939)

We use the city docks, which have no facilities but are closest to shopping and ice cream! We didn't realize how much the current rips through here! I'm glad we were at slackwater (by accident) on our first time tying up here. There is some convoluted formula to figure out when slackwater is, but don't remember it.



Nice marina, 2007-09-16
Captain: , Olympia (1435)

Nice marina. Close to shops and restaurants. Watch the current though! It really rips through.
