Want a good excuse to use your boat...?
Bring your boat to our docks in Olympia to get outfitted with a new Iverson's dodger or other canvas work. Simply drop your boat off one weekend and pick it up the next weekend! There are many things to do and see within walking distance of our docks; great restaurants, farmers market, antique shops, art galleries, quilting shops, etc.. Also, within walking distance is a full service boat yard just south of our docks where you can coordinate to have other work done while you are here, making it a "one stop shop".
We are located at Swantown Marina in Budd Inlet. From Seattle to Olympia the trip takes between 7-9 hours on the water depending on your timing with the currents. Drive time on I-5 from Seattle to Olympia is about an hour. Many of our clients have broken the trip up with an overnight stay in Gig Harbor which is almost exactly half way. Gig Harbor is a charming town and is a great place to spend an evening whether at anchor, on a buoy, or at the guest docks. Plan on leaving Gig Harbor early in the morning to hit the tides just right and cruise for 3-4 hours before arriving at Swantown Marina.
The benefits of bringing your boat to our docks are first and foremost, a great excuse to use your boat! Plus, brining your boat to us saves you time. We offer expedited service when boats are at our docks. Call for more information or to schedule an appointment that will give you an excuse to use your boat.
