Only the guy who isn't rowing has time to rock the boat.

Beautiful Friday Harbor

I wanrted to share on eof my favorite vacation places to take the boat.
Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. If you've been there, you know it's wonderful, if you haven't's time to find out.

There is a 500 slip marina in Friday Harbor so there is plenty of room for everyone. Just be sure during the summer months to call ahead as they do get very busy.  Their peak season is July and August so their rates are also higher at that time for moorage.

They are also very specific in the steps to docking. I will include below so you can see for yourself:

  • Slip Assignment Station located on breakwater “A” our northern most breakwater. Please call us on VHF channel 66US upon arrival or motor right up to this station.
  • G-Dock Check-in Station is at the base of G-Dock. Staff here can help grab your lines or check you in for overnight moorage.
  • Main Pier Check-in Station, located just below the port office serves as concierge central. Here you can also check-in, get maps, directions, phone numbers,or we can hail you a cab. Main station is also a great place to pick up your Port of Friday harbor logoed memories in the form of T-shirts, hats, bags, or blankets. Come check us out!
  • Breakwater Station, located just over the bridge from the main float to the breakwater is there to make your docking needs easier. Our experienced staff can help you tie-up, push off & plug-in. Look for us in red!

Like they say, their staff is dressed in red so you can spot them easily as you pull in.   For more info on Friday Harbor I have posted their link here:Friday Harbor Marina Click Here
