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.

A charming place to visit! We had slip #8, which was close to the ramp from from the dock. We walked to the Kingston Ale House for a delicious dinner. There is a huge open green space at the top of the ramp where the kids could run and play. The bathroom facilities are good and the showers don't need quarters. Friendly, clean place. Will be back.

Great as always. Ray is always very friendly and helpful.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great staff and accommodations. Thanks so much🌞

First trip to Kingston. Marina has new power connections and an easy to reach fuel dock with competitive prices. Employees were all excellent!

Very nice marina and town. Ray, the harbormaster, was very helpful.

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.

I cancelled my stay last Friday due to having to return home (medical issue). The other marina's honored my cancellation within 24hrs. Kingston still hasn't refunded my payment.
Hello Doryman1952, The Port of Kingston has tried reaching out to you multiple times to resolve this review.
The refund was processed the same day as your cancellation request. The Port of Kingston has no control over how quickly Dockwa issues the return of the funds.

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!

Nice marina, Saturday market was fun, plenty of other shops/restaurants nearby too.
by dawnumstot on Aug 02, 2019
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.

Lovely facility, wonderful people, a very pleasant experience.

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 cathyandnick on Jul 23, 2018
The marina is very clean. The Harbor Master was friendly and came and introduced himself.

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 people, nice marina
by docsavage1 on Sep 05, 2017
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!
