Arriving by Boat
Whether the San Juan Islands are your destination or a stop-off on the way to the Canadian Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound, and beyond, you'll find their beauty and hospitality irresistible. Count on plenty of fine moorage opportunities throughout the San Juans, at a full-service marina dock or on the hook in a secluded cove. If you choose to anchor out, our local conservation groups have some recommendations to help us preserve sensitive near-shore habitats.
