Sailing and Boating

Sailing and Boating

The Strait of Juan de Fuca is a challenging and exhilarating sailing experience. There is a strong heritage of Wooden Ship Building here, with a major festival and school in Port Townsend.

Bustling Port Angeles Harbor offers protection for large and small craft. The Harbor and  Sequim Bay also have public marinas.

Port Townsend also has a marina, as does Port Hadlock and Port Ludlow.

Marinas for ocean fishing include world-renowned Sekiu, Clallam Bay, Neah Bay and La Push for spectacular catches.

John Wayne Marina

The great film legend John Wayne was a frequent visitor to Sequim Bay aboard the family yacht, the "Wild Goose." John Wayne was struck by the pristine natural elegance of Sequim Bay and believed it was the perfect location for a marina. An ideal destination for water adventurers, the marina stands on land donated by the late film star in 1975. The main Marina building has a collection of John Wayne memorabilia on display. The facility is designed to be compatible with its surroundings, so barefoot mariners can look forward to a quiet cove and excellent amenities.
