Fantastic overnight getaway from Seattle. Only two hours (on a slow boat) from Seattle. Great little town with lots of fun shops, restaurants and things to do. Fun marina with great people. Must visit if you haven’t been yet!
Great marina and perfect weekend town. Highly recommended. Jenise is super helpful and friendly, and makes making reservations a breeze.
We always have a great time in Poulsbo. However, the dock power continues to be an issue with the Port. We plugged in and we always have power, but the plug was loose, the screws were loose. We tighten them and we were fine.
I had to cancel, which I did more than 24 hours in advance. I think the credit voucher system is a total rip off. Hotels DO provide refunds if the room is cancelled up to the day before your stay. To expect boaters to keep track of a piece of paper - the credit voucher - for a year in order to get credit is unreasonable and ridiculous. You should have better customer service and provide full refunds up to a reasonable advance notice, just like all other marinas in the area. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
Very friendly ...good power
Poulsbo Marina is a great, low key get away. The Scandivanian town has great shops and restaurants. Good bakery and coffee shops. If you need marine supplies the marine store is good.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
The cons: wifi is terrible and the washroom facilities are pretty basic. Take your flip flops into the shower.
Friendly prompt service at the dock. Clean facilities.
Helpful staff and host. Great marina area for food and supplies.
Horrible. 5 boats in our club could not get power!! Marina blamed our boats at first. They knew this was a lie. Staff would not admit their wiring problems. Locals all knew!!! Bad Bad Bad To hell with Poulsbo
Great destination but don't make reservations on-line or pay for moorage in advance. A friend had engine problems on the way in and the Port refused to refund or rain check them. Unfriendly staff, unorganized and doesn't understand boaters needs.
They need to be better about putting sailboats on F dock when there are minus tides. No fun seeing sailboats listing. We were also in mud. Not much help with docking like other marinas. We helped 12 + boats tie up in the wind.
It was a very busy weekend with the Viking Festival . We were assigned a slip with another boat that had a pretty wide beam as well. We were within inches at the most and the way I had to bring my boat forward to avoid scraping on the stern caused by bow edge to rub on the dock as well. I would recommend talking with the marina about the width of your boat in advance
My wife and I have made Poulsbo a regular stop now, at least twice a month. The marina is clean and the dock staff are always friendly. I would highly recommend this marina, however I want to keep it quiet so I will always have a dock space available. :-) Kudos to the Poulsbo staff! John Howgate
One of the most popular boating destinations in Puget Sound, the Poulsbo Marina is located in the heart of downtown Poulsbo – also known as “Little Norway”. There are many restaurants to choose from, several of which offer fine dining. There are a multitude of specialty shops and galleries all within a block of the marina. With 5 micro-breweries in town, Poulsbo is sure to cater to any taste. If that is not enticing enough, Poulsbo also has one of the last remaining Marina exchange in the PNW! Then, when you are finished touring the town, enjoyed some entertainment at several establishments offering live music, including award winning musicals at the Jewel Box Theatre. Visiting boaters will enjoy a clean, well run marina. This Washington Clean Marina facility boasts a new GFCI protected electrical system, which means that it is one of the safest marinas in Puget Sound. Want to know if your boat stands up to GFCI test? Go to Poulsbo and find out. But, be prepared to run your generator just in case. Poulsbo features several great festivals throughout the year, most of which are located in the waterfront park next to the marina. Visit for the weekend and take part in Viking Festival, 3rd of July Fireworks or the Poulsbo Arts Festival. Call for more information, you'll be glad you did!
