The Shelter Bay Marina is located within a private community with direct access to the Swinomish Channel. The 300-slip marina is just a short dinghy ride to the historic town of La Conner. Explore the many shops, restaurants, galleries and museums via the new waterfront boardwalk. Enjoy the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, Christmas Lighted Boat Parade, Classic Auto and Boat Show, art festivals and many other fun activities for the whole family. Our marina is also not far from the Swinomish Casino & Lodge in case you’re feeling lucky!

Boaters will appreciate the protected moorage and the amazing cruising, crabbing, fishing and whale watching in this area. Our central location offers easy access via the Swinomish Channel to points north and west, including Bellingham, Anacortes, the San Juan Islands, the Canadian Gulf Islands and beyond. Head south toward Saratoga Passage and cruise to Oak Harbor, Coupeville, Langley, and other Puget Sound destinations, or through Deception Pass to Victoria and the San Juan Islands.

Haul-out, fuel dock, marine supply and repair services are close by.
