Reviews for Port McNeill Boat Harbour
They Make it easy, 2015-08-13
Captain: , Port Isabel TX (640)

Great marina, nice sea wall park just off the ramp. Harbor office shares building with visitors center for easy access to information. Friendly and helpful staff. They make it easy for you to enjoy your stay here.

Friendly and clean, 2013-09-28
Captain: , Victoria BC (515)

The docks are in good condition with new additions for more room. Laundry is close but not on-site, as are showers. The SuperValu has excellent meat at good prices, the IGA has better produce. Both stores have shopping cart pickup at the dockhead.

Excellent spot, 2013-08-25
Captain: , Cruising (3259)

The marina now takes reservations, and they are very helpful, friendly and nice. It's a perfect spot to reprovision and hit a few stores for necessities. Everything is very convenient.

Excellent base for provisioning and exploring, 2013-01-05
Captain: , Seattle (690)

The marina has been newly expanded, with lots of additional docks. My wife shouted with joy when she saw cleats instead of bullrails on the docks. The new ones are a bit narrow. Easy access to 50 Amp power and water. Friendly staff and everything you need is close by including groceries, laundry and marine store. Was not impressed with the two places we dined. They have a pumpout station at the municipal dock but beware - the fitting was much too small for our pumpout and it required fashining a gasket of sorts.

Good stop over, 2011-07-09
Captain: , Friday Harbor, WA (490)

If you are on you way north or south, this is a great stop to provision . As the previous comment, the grocery is close and good!

Good provisioning stop, 2010-12-24
Captain: , Sequim, WA (676)

2 Grocery stores nearby. IGA has free ice for boaters. Someone picks up grocery carts at marina. Several ok-good restaurants nearby.

Great facilities, 2010-08-19
Captain: , Nanaimo, BC Canada (505)

Best re-provisioning stop in the area. Good water qauality, shopping and restaurants within close walking.
New harbour improvements on-going.

Port McNeill, 2009-03-19
Captain: , Whitby (1653)

Great marina, good docks, clean but simple facilities. A major renovation is planned, and funding already approved.

Busy place, 2007-08-26
Captain: , Olympia (1435)

As the summer goes on, so does the crowding at this popular marina. No reservations. Good food in town. Groceries can be delivered to dock. Diesel mechanic available in town. Repairs can be made. Marina staff are friendly, many times the visiting boaters are not.
