Reviews for South Whidbey Harbor
Nice Visit, 2017-09-13
Captain: , Keyport (41)

Small marina with a great staff that will be there to help you dock. Nice town too but not very dog friendly at the restaurants.

great facility and access into town, 2016-07-08
Captain: , Leschi (30)

helpful harbormaster, easy docking and great protection (the wind blew from the north hard all night but we stayed calm behind the wall). Langley is a sweet town (although we were there on a Monday when much was closed). good store and food (Useless Cafe great for the morning start). only complaint is no fuel anywhere nearby.

Great new Docks, 2015-11-30
Captain: , Bellingham (60)

Love the ease of the new breakwater docks. They are really solid, adn because they don't allow mooring to the outside of the breakwater, you have wonderful views. Great alternative for bigger boats that had trouble finding space "inside." Second the suggestion for Dinner at Primo's, and the Useless Bay Cafe is great for specialty coffees and breakfast.

New Breakwater, 2015-04-07
Captain: , Seattle (505)

Tied to the new breakwater dock. Good protection and excellent views across Saratoga Passage to Camano Island. Nice picnic tables on the dock. Easy walk to town on the road, although may be a little steep for some. Good burgers and beer at Primo Bistro.

Great Town, 2014-11-04
Captain: , Shilshole Marina (90)

The town is small but has a lot of artist shops and small restaurants. The harbor is small and shallow (especially SW) so watch your depth. Generally everyone is very helpful and friendly. Fills up fast in the summer so call ahead for reservations.

Nice Place, 2014-09-07
Captain: , Liberty Bay, WA (430)

Thier new breakwater docks are very nice and easy to get in and out of. We were there in September and there was plenty of room, but for as nice as it is it will probably be full in the summer time. Nice little town to walk around in and the Village Pizzeria has great pizza's and great view. Very helpfull staff and if you call in before getting there they will be there to help you dock.

Pleasant place, 2014-04-10
Captain: , everett, wa (355)

It can get crowded here on summer weekends, but they really try to accomidate everyone. Restrooms are a few steps across the parking lot near the pier.The town includes such things as resturaunts, jewlery, antiques, and art. This is a nice afternoon walk around town.

great experience with 2hr stopover, 2013-05-28
Captain: , North Lake Marina, Lake Washington (260)

on our way back from the San Juans, we stopped over for the first time at South Whidbey Harbor and had a great experience. We called ahead and confirmed availability and were greeted on the dock by Amy. It is a tight-fitting marina but Amy and her crew help make sure each and every boat is safely moored and leaves safely. I will definitely stay again. There is also a quaint town up the hill (about 10 min walk) complete with a few restaurants and stores including grocery.

Small but friendly, 2012-08-22
Captain: , Bellingham, WA (77)

Reservations are strongly advised, particularly during the summer boating season. In our experience the marina staff is friendly and efficient and does everything they can to make your stay an enjoyable one. Clever flip-over signs on the slips that say Open or Occupied so you can leave the marina and go crabbing or fishing without a worry that your slip will be taken by someone else while you're gone.

Be careful of depths entering and leaving the harbor. There are shallow areas that extend out north of the harbor. Also keep a close lookout approaching and departing during crab season--- a lot of pots get set out in the water around the harbor in depths up to 100 feet.

There can be a noticeable current in the harbor due to its location.

Caution certain tide and wind conditions may bring sea weed into marina., 2012-08-20
Captain: , LAKE STEVENS (49)

I had my water intake to my engine get clogged. Otherwise great Place.

Nice small harbor, 2012-06-26
Captain: , Port Orchard, WA (322)

Clean and well maintained, the harbor Know takes reservations for thier limited spaces

Spend the day or night, 2011-11-23
Captain: , Port of Everett (68)

Must stop in and spend the night. Weekend walking the town is very nice. Roomer has it that the marine could be expanding to allow more boats. Anchorage is available however limited to a small number of boats.

Great place to visit, 2011-02-12
Captain: , Olalla, WA (342)

Not many slips available so reservations are a must. Well protected from seas and winds. The walk to town is up hill about 1.5 city blocks. At the top on the right is Langley Pizza. Good stuff. gets crowded fast so eat early or very late. Theyhave outside seating but no pets allowed so keep them tied outside the fence or on the boat. the town is dog friendly with lots of water dishes outside many shops. It will take you about 1-1.5 hours to walk the entire town. Fun place and lots of friendly locals... Enjoy!

A fun little Island seaport, 2010-12-25
Captain: , Sequim, WA (676)

We love Langley, The town is quaint and has lots of shops and several good restaurants. Marina is indeed small but friendly and accomodating. Our boat owners group comes here every year.

Very nice place, 2010-10-22
Captain: , Kenmore, WA (948)

The harbor is very small, and I've not been able to tie up there a few times, but the anchoring is OK. The beach is soft white sand and the restrooms are heated and lit at night. Langley has many touristy stores and cafes and a great grocery store. It's a getaway town for many wealthy Seattleites, so they cater to visitors. The 'Choochokam Arts Festival' in July is fun to visit.

No Dingy Dock, 2010-09-06
Captain: , Cap Sante Marina, Anacortes, WA (61)

Beware that there is no dingy dock. If you anchor out, as you may have to because of the size of the marina, you are stuc on the boat unless you beach your dingy.

Langley Harbour, 2010-08-26
Captain: , Live in Vernon, B.C. looking for a RPH LRC Trawler (127)

A very nice small municipal marina; Wharinger is excellent and always seems to find a place to put you on the dock. Short walk to the town, although it is uphill. Lots to see and nice shops. Great pizza parlour on the main street, just follow the road from the marina up the hill and you will get there!

Langley Marina, 2010-01-19
Captain: , Everett, WA (43)

The marina is small and well maintained. The restrooms are often full of sand due to divers rinsing their gear off. The town is quaint and has nice restaurants.
