In port for a rendezvous, Ray and the marina staff treated our group very well. The marina includes a nice park like grassy area where they hold a Sunday market. Facilities are very nice. Good showers and clean bathrooms. Marina is accessible to restaurants, cafes, and ice cream shops.

Beautiful marina. Very well maintained. Exceptionally friendly staff. Ray, the Harbor Master is the best there is.
This is a super well cared for marina.

Great marina - good, clean facilities and an amazing staff to work with. Thank you!
by jgriml on Aug 12, 2022
The docks are right inside the breakwater and easy to find. Just be careful entering as the entrance narrows at minus tides so stay within the channel markers. A bonus--there is a portable pump out cart that can be wheeled to your boat, hooked up to a sewer pipe on the dock--and the skipper does the pump out without moving the boat to the fuel dock. Very convenient! Docks are an easy walk to Kingston restaurants and shops.

We keep coming back and I'm never disappointed. I don't know of a marina with better staffing. The dock hands are fantastic, the office staff is amazing. The marina is well equipped and zero drama. Great fuel prices too.

Beautiful facility with friendly staff. Close to food and drink.
by sugarplumb on Jul 30, 2022
Fabulous stay! Ray and the staff are helpful and accommodating. Clean facilities with easy access. The use of the electric cart is a lifesaver for getting supplies. Access to restaurants, events, and the ferry to Edmonds or Seattle was a nice extra. We will be back!
by devirian on Jul 27, 2022
Very nice, clean marina with great people. Lovely little town with some good food. Large market, hardware store, up scale pet supply all in easy walk. Only issue for us was internet. We work from boat in secure environment. Usually use T-Mobile hotspot. Here, reception was poor and marina wi-if was incompatible with some VPN. Would go back when not working.
by sara3289 on Jul 26, 2022
Everyone was incredible, especially Dock Master Ray. It was our first time docking our boat and we needed help. Ray helped us calm down and gave us encouraging words. He came down early the next morning to help us leave bearing gifts. We will forever be grateful.
So glad we decided to dock here. Thank you to everyone who helped.

Great as always, we always enjoy Kingston.
by psychman on Jul 19, 2022
Very inviting marina. We had 3 boats traveling g from Port Ludlow. We are all members of the Port Ludlow Yacht club. The facilities here are fantastic. The marina is right next to the ferry terminal. We took the ferry over to Edmonds and ate lunch. I have never seen such green grass at a marina before. The marina is very clean. Perfect for walking dogs. I want to give a special shout out to Ray who is really very good at his job, both from a line handling view point to his friendly, welcoming demeanor. The POK is lucky to have him. Thanks Ray!
Don, Doug and Steve.

Beautiful Marina and lovely park and planted areas. Visited the Market and Hardware store. Ice cream cones from the Creperie. Thoroughly enjoyable!
by fhschmidtke on Jul 07, 2022
Metal piling at head of slip prevented us from docking fully in slip, difficult to get off and on the boat. Wifi would not work for us
by seattledoug on Jun 26, 2022
Nice marina, friendly office staff, lovely park lawn and Public Market Sunday morning.
by tristowne on Jun 25, 2022
We are thoroughly impressed with the facilities and amenities, the cleanliness an ease of navigation of the accommodations. We will most certainly be back!
by janasb on Jun 17, 2022
The Port personnel are so nice and maintain a very clean facility. The only concern I have is that by reserving through dockwa, they were unable to allow me to use the available reciprocal privileges since I had prepaid in full. Lesson learned!
by bretlathrop on Jun 13, 2022
What a great place and great team the Port of Kingston team have. Ray is a great Harbormaster, welcoming and advocating for more visits. The fuel dock was convenient and good prices. Enjoyed the quick stay very much and will return for sure!
by dmr on May 19, 2022
Very impressed with this marina. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Marina grounds and park are very well kept. Lots of visiting foot traffic and leashed dogs. Nice large well kept bathrooms, showers and laundry. Small downtown shops and restaurants one block away from office.

by rsamariner on Sep 26, 2021
We love visiting. Harbor master Ray is the best. He met us at the slip with a keycard, slip payment receipt, and shorepower adapter. He and Ashley are always super helpful and nice. See you again soon! S/v Salacia.
by quackster02 on Sep 26, 2021
We came here as as the halfway point for our trip for fuel and were glad we did. The staff was really nice, helpful, and friendly. Usually at fuel docks, it's here's your hat, what's your hurry. Here, they asked you if we needed water as well as fuel. We had reserved a night here as well in case the weather, and we decided to do the next leg as the weather was gorgeous. They called into the Marina office for us to cancel our reservation. The staff made it so enjoyable that we will be coming here again and again if we are ever in the area.
by lmbbates on Sep 24, 2021
Beautiful marina. Great staff. 1st time here and we absolutely loved it. Special thank you to Rose and Ray outstanding staff. Outstanding customer service. Thank you

Marina folks were very helpful. I appreciated their communication and follow-up. The marina's services were exceptionally clean and inviting. What a jewel!
by rlenzer22 on Oct 01, 2020
Cool village to visit. The guest moorage fills up quickly so plan to arrive early. The amenities are nice and well maintained and the staff are really friendly. Also the grass area is one of the nicest manicured lawns I’ve ever walked on.
by gentryjennifer on Sep 07, 2020
Staff at POK is awesome, helpful and friendly! They check the guest dock several times each day. The office is set up with lots of COVID hand cleaners. The Harbor Master was very helpful with tips on where to drop crab pots.
The facilities are also great -- clean bathrooms and showers. Laundry room was clean and machines work (2 washers and 2 dryers). 40 min for the washer, 45 for the dryer. Docks are clean and in good condition.
by danielledobbelsigrist on Aug 22, 2020
Great Marina. Super helpful staff. We came in on a very windy day and they were at the ready to get us safely docked in a tight space. Darling downtown is just steps away with great restaurants. All amenities were clean and fresh.
by cerise on Aug 22, 2020
Kingston has a very nice marina with clean facilities and a friendly staff.
There are nice some me very places within a few minute walk, but it is a small town. Crepes were wonderful.
by plssellars on Aug 10, 2020
The Marina is fine and the restrooms were clean and spacious. Good social distancing signage. The town of Kingston is within walking distance with lots of eating and shopping options. The pump out station is inoperable. I felt it would have been nice to have been notified of this prior to arrival. If you can preassign slips, the fact that the pump out is down and will be for several weeks, is important information to know prior to arrival.
by joybeanrm on Aug 03, 2020
Staff was great, friendly. restroom and shower clean. Thaks!

Very nice marina and town. Ray, the harbormaster, was very helpful.
by u_mjpe3sxs1pmtbxnssz on Jul 20, 2020
Friendly marina staff, great facilities
by ddenver on Jul 16, 2020
No clue why the restrooms in the marina are not open to paying customers since the Washington State Ferry bathroom - no more than 100 yards away - is open. No bathroom and/or shower access nor access to the usual loaner electric car, but mooorage rates are not reduced. Seems silly to me.
by mjperry78 on Jun 29, 2020
Restrooms and showers closed for COVID. Using WA state ferry public facilities. No consideration in charges for moorage. However all properly disclosed.
by gregarend on Jun 12, 2020
Great marina and people, Ray and the entire group there are the best! My favorite marina!
by ryanhoover123 on Sep 02, 2019
I was only able to stay one night if the two I booked. The harbor master, Ray, who came down personally to meet us as we arrived assured us we would not be paying for a night we didn’t stay there. He gave us a free night stay. Kingston was beautiful and welcoming as always.
by mistybeu on Aug 28, 2019
Kingston is a fun Marina, We had a great time as always. The Harbor Master, Ray, is such a great guy and so quick to help out with anything you need. WIFI was a little week and spotty but better than nothing.
by nathanlfrost on Aug 19, 2019
Ray, the harbormaster, met us at our slip and helped us tie up even though we arrived after hours. Great stop-over on the way to and from the San Juans. Close to plenty of food and drink options. Highly recommended.
by esitterley on Aug 18, 2019
Harbormaster Ray demonstrated a level of customer service rarely seeh anywhere these days!!! The marina is in excellent shape, the grounds are lovely and Sister Mercy busted out some amazing jams! We can’t wait to come back!

Slip was reserved as promised. Marina staff were welcoming. Summer concert in park was a bonus.

Love this marina! Is clean and quiet with shops and restaurants close by. The staff is awesome
by richham on Jun 01, 2019
Staff are super friendly, great marina, clean lavatory, slips are easy in and out, no strong cross currents to worry. Approach much improved with removal of all the old crab pots. A regular stop on the way to the San Juan’s.
by budsccmx on May 12, 2019
Ray the dockmaster was very helpful and made it such a pleasant place to stay .
Also upon talking Joe was there and was very helpful .
I highly recommend Kingston for a place to stay.

Lovely facility, wonderful people, a very pleasant experience.
by singularity on Mar 10, 2019
Great little town for a weekend, or overnight visit. The Marina is staffed with friendly and helpful folks. Everything was clean and in good working order. All the amenities are here and easily accessible, though the WiFi did wax and wane. The marina provides electric cars for 2 or 4 that boaters can use to head deeper into town to do shopping. A few good restaurants are a 5 min walk away. Try Kingston Alehouse, great food.
by jennaa on Sep 14, 2018
Love visiting Kingston! The marina has great services to offer and Ray who I believe is the Marina Manager is absolutely amazing. The most friendly, helpful, genuine person. If I owned a marina, I would definitely want him running it!
by spinydogfish on Sep 11, 2018
As always, the marina and staff are excellent. Even though a busy three day weekend, the staff is accommodating and helpful as if you are the only boat. The Marina and grounds are nicely cared for and the nearby shops and restaurants are very good.
by b1eddie on Sep 05, 2018
It was great thanks for the slip
by mlmonday on Aug 26, 2018
This was our first trip to Port of Kingston but definitely not our last. We had a wonderful weekend! Customer service was great we enjoyed our first electric car ride. Thank you Harbor Master
by merrytime on Aug 24, 2018
an excellent stay, even got to use their electric cart to run errands in town!
by skippercjer on Jul 19, 2018
I made my first visit to Kingston Marina via my boat on Monday afternoon July 16. I had earlier made a reservation and received back an assigned slip. Getting an assigned slip ahead of arrival is unique for area marinas and I welcomed that. However, I encountered great confusion upon entering the marina as to where my assigned slip was to be found. I had downloaded the dock chart to my smart phone, but it lacked clear information. Upon entering the marina and encountering no explicit directional signage I did a slow speed tight u-turn just off dock C and immediately ran aground, despite being well within all nav buoys.
I was able to twist and get free and then exited the marina. I called the marina office and got confusing directions but got the idea that I should proceed with the breakwater to starboard. Later I learned that another sailboat from my club (Seattle Sailing Club) had also run aground upon entering the marina. No doubt the low tides were the culprit. But it’s most unacceptable for insufficient depths to be un-marketed in the navigation paths inside a marina!
Additionally your marina map and signage is grossly insufficient. A guest boat entering a marina should be able to immediately understand from abundantly clear signs what direction to go for “guest mooring”, “fuel”, and “pump out”. You should send a link along with confirmed reservations to a map with color coded “GUEST MOORING” and the other critical information. It does not need to show where trucks are parked or any other information not useful to arriving boaters.

Great! marina staff are super friendly and helpful. Nice little town with enough to keep you busy.
by cindebannon on Aug 28, 2017
Great marina, cute town, has everything you need, concert in the park and farmers market were nice. Our slip was taken when we arrived, so we took one 2 down and it turned out to be fine, not sure what happened but the office was glad that we took that one instead, we think a boat grabbed the wrong slip. No issues at all and very happy with our stay!
by allyr2 on Aug 21, 2017
Very cute marina! The facilities were clean and nice. The staff was very friendly and we loved the free concert in the cove!
The slips are well protected by the breakwater wall and the marina is very peaceful!
by gelmo68 on Jul 31, 2017
Great weather, awesome festival and great staff. Ray was the most helpful and friendly guy we met. He helped us with a pjmpoout and we had great conversation. Good times!
by greywolf on Jun 15, 2012
Have to echo the other review here. Very nice facilities and very affordable. Food and other supplies are within walking distance. The local market offered to pick up our cart at the marina. That is a community that supports boating!
