Perfect weather and ideal locale
For years Point Roberts Marina has well-served boaters traveling through the Pacific Northwest, offering a safe place to moor in its well-designed marina with perfect weather and an ideal locale. Point Roberts is proximate to not only the San Juan Islands, but with its marina feeding directly into the Strait of Georgia, Point Roberts is also close to the Canadian Gulf Islands, Victoria, and downtown Vancouver. In the midst of such incredible surroundings and destinations Point Roberts Marina offers a wealth of activities such as salmon and crab fishing, sailing, whale-watching, and even world-class golf.
With everything Point Roberts Marina has to offer we wanted to update our website to be the greatest resource for information for each of our boaters and visitors. We invite you to browse our Boating & Fishing pages to check the weather and tides; or visit the Regulatory section for detailed information on permits, licensing and customs. Click to the Moorage section to learn about slip fees, or over to the Marina Club pages to learn about all this private club has to offer.
We hope that you find our site instrumental and enjoyable when planning your journeys, and we hope to see you soon at the Point Roberts Marina!
The Management Team of Point Roberts Marina
Point Roberts Marina provides boaters with the perfect location to discover the San Juan Islands (13 miles), the Canadian Gulf Islands (10 miles), World Class Golf (2 miles), and private airport (1 mile). Point Roberts, Washington is located 30 miles north of Bellingham, WA and 22 miles south of Vancouver, B.C., immediately adjacent to the lower mainland community of Tsawwassen. An anomaly of geography, Point Roberts has saltwater on three sides and to the north connecting to Canada. It’s a great place to get away, and still be just minutes from the heart of Vancouver.
The Point is in a “Blue Hole”, with some of the best weather in the northwest. Being an equal distance from the surrounding mountains on Vancouver Island to the west, the Vancouver north shore mountains and Mt. Baker and the Cascades to the east, weather, clouds and fog, are blown out, creating a micro-climate with annual rainfall one third that of neighboring Vancouver.
To protect your investment, Point Roberts Marina is a professionally engineered marina protected from high winds, with reduced wave action and excellent water quality. The marina entrance is dredged to 12′. We have concrete docks and berthing for vessels up to 150′. For additional security we have security staffed and gated access to docks, as well as keyed access to restrooms, showers, and laundry. Absentee tenants from all over the world use Point Roberts Marina as their home port.
Drive time to tee-time to island time, in no time it’s playtime! Fly- in, drive-in, boat-in; whether you are a sailor, cruiser, fisherman, golfer or eco-tourist, Point Roberts Marina is a great place to moor your boat. The marina provides you with immediate access to the open waters of the Strait of Georgia. Fishermen can catch salmon and crab within 100 yards of the marina entrance. Sailors remove sail covers before they leave their slip so they can raise sails at the harbor entrance. The wind that blows out the weather makes sailing great all year long for day sailing, and with two local yacht clubs, there are racing programs year round. We have reciprocal agreements with scores of yacht clubs for cruising. Bring your golf clubs to play the Point’s all-season championship golf course. Lounge on your boat, walk or bicycle to view Orca whales, nearby bald eagle’s nests and one of the largest Great Blue Heron rookeries in North America. [ related resources: Community | Maps ]
Point Roberts Marina is the closest mooring location to the Gulf Islands. Our tenants are in the islands early on Friday night. Just as important as getting there, is getting home. On Sunday night, it is comforting to know that home is not far away.
