Reviews for Shawl Bay Marina
Adequate facility, good pancakes, 2014-09-09
Captain: , Olalla WA (412)

The docks and other amenities were pretty shabby, but the people were friendly and pancake breakfast delicious.

Shawl Bay - Quiet, calm, scenic, reasonably priced & pancakes, 2014-07-30
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

Shawl Bay is a nice basics Broughtons marina that offers one of the best moorage bargains around. There's more to Shawl Bay than first appears. In addition to the free pancake breakfast, they have occasional entertainment as well as alternating Tuesday Chowder or Deep Fried Turkey events. As with all Broughtons marinas, shore power comes from the marina's generator which may be intermittent. The folks at Shawl Bay are helpful and accomodating. We enjoyed our stay at Shawl Bay and plan to return.

Just okay, good pancakes, 2013-08-25

We found Shawl Bay to be a little too scruffy and not as friendly as we would like. There is no shore access nearby for hiking or walking. The Bead Lady moved back to her floathouse nearby. The pancakes in the morning were very good.

Friendly place, 2012-09-03
Captain: , Seattle, WA (437)

We were there towards end of August with just 3 other boats. Lorne and Shawn are friendly hosts, though may be reserved until they get to know you. We had a friendly happy hour and filling breakfast in the morning. Nice folks all around. Internet access was $5 btw and fine. Good palce for laundry too.

Having a short season with the high costs of bringing supplies and providing services has got to be very Tough ... still, we think $14 for intermittent electric is a bit pricey. The folks are friendly, and yes, the pancakes are tasty!

Captain: , Shelter Bay, La Conner, WA (22)

Who says this is run-down? We just finished a wonderful Seafood Chowder and fixin's at the dock gathering place and nearly 20 boats were represented. Loren and Shawn and Shilo are always there to greet you and get the boat secured and after the famous pancake breakfast they're there to wish you safe cruising to thr next spot. We've been coming here for many years, as have most of the boaters here tonight, and will keep coming back for the hospitality, secure dockage, greatest happy-hours. The docks are well maintained and the ambiance is wonderfully Broughtons!

Always friendly and relaxed, reasoable. The pancake breakfast is a good start to the day.

Pancakes in the AM are nice, 2010-12-24

The marina is going downhill. This is a tough business. Robbie has a water taxi business there if you need a fast run to Port McNeill
