Nice marina, not as polished as years back. The marina staff was for the most part friendly. When you pre tip the dock attendant 20.00 at the fuel dock, one would think maybe he’d help hold the fuel hose while I was dragging it across the cockpit, or real it back up at the pump, but no, which canceled his after filling tip. I think finding knowledgeable employees might be an issue on Orcas, as most other communities.

Fun place. Internet and phone service needs work.

Lovely place…took a taxi to go 3 miles to Turtleback Mountain $30. Marina is nice and the deck hands extremely polite and helpful. The WiFi was too far away too connect and our AT&T service didn’t work here but T-mobile did. The BBQ restaurant up the road wasn’t open on Thursday and the pie place doesn’t open until 4:00 today. We’ll have to time our visit better next time.

Deer Harbor is wonderful! All employees are very helpful, the bathrooms and shower houses are clean and well maintained. It's truly our favorite martins in the Islands.

Marc and crew are exceptional!

Nice marina & cool bbq place up the hill. Could you invest in some WiFi?

by rickleegwater on Jul 21, 2021
Wonderful marina with amazing views. Great place to relax and enjoy yourself. Marina staff is friendly and helpful, especially Kate. Good facilities.

by captp2p on Jul 21, 2021
Always enjoy my time at Deer Harbor. Quieter than other local marinas but with all the amenities you need. Food is tasty, ice cream delicious, staff fantastic!

Nice facilities, friendly, helpful staff, beautiful setting.

by pamc on Jul 17, 2021
The marina is well managed and the food at the shack at the top of the dock is very good. The dock hands are exceptional! There were nasty winds causing a major boat fiasco, and they handled the problem with professionalism and persistance.

by kavabell on Jul 17, 2021
Exceptional dock hands. Surprisingly good food on the dock. Great facilities... luxurious shower--7 minutes with water hot quickly.

by suzmet on Jul 16, 2021
Helpful, friendly dock attendants. Clean restrooms & showers. Quiet even when busy.

by aleonard on Jul 15, 2021
Very cute marina and a beautiful bay! Great for kayaking! Lovely walk with spectacular views through the Wasp Islands.

by rechkof on Jul 12, 2021
I have stayed in this marina for many years in my once 25, now 29 Searay with the family - what a lovely spot! Very protected from weather, peaceful unpretentious vibe, friendly boat neighbors. They have a nicely stocked store with the best egg and cheese croissants for breakfast, nice shower area and a pool you can access on hot summer days . There’s a relatively new cider and pizza place across the road, and an Inn on top of the hill for dinner with a killer view of the area. It’s quiet most evenings , so if you’re looking for evening rowdiness, this isn’t your spot. Another week in Paradise last week (July 2021) What a wonderful place.

by aphanson17 on Jul 12, 2021
Friendly and helpful staff. Decent amenities. Not a ton to do so wouldn't plan to stay more than a day or so. Small store and good pizza place nearby. The pool said heated but was very cold, even for kids. $2.20/ft is expensive for what they offer.

by burnettgig on Jul 10, 2021
Deer Harbor Marina is small and has an excellent staff! It can get windy because of the southern exposure. The small grocery also serves hot items, and a pizza restaurant is across the street for the evenings. We will be back!

by akalienekana on Jul 06, 2021
This is our favorite marina in the San Juan Islands. The location alone is stunning, but when you add in the fantastic dock hands, the store, grill , and ice cream, delicious pizza right across the street, clean shower facilities, and the 4th of July decorations, it makes for a wonderful visit!

by sockeye2232 on Jul 06, 2021
We love staying at Deer Harbor!! Staff is friendly and helpful. Fellow boaters are respectful and friendly also. Scenery is amazing! Just wish the fireworks were on the 4th. But otherwise perfect.

by singularity on Jul 04, 2021
Our favorite marina in the San Juans. Beautiful, convenient, charming and quiet. We go every fourth of July. The marina staff is attentive, helpful and friendly. Great harbor and open water for kayaking or taking the dinghy out. A couple great casual restaurants close by. The dock store has an awesome grill and things to replenish stores. Most of all, it’s just chill. Deer Harbor is the marina we like to go to disconnect and relax and be around like folks.

by lare on Jul 03, 2021
Wonderful people and great docks. I wish the store and grill were open earlier and later.

by randdmcdonald on Jun 30, 2021
We stayed at Deer Harbor on 6/26/2021 in our 27 foot sailboat. We found the marina slips to be spacious and well kept. It was well protected and quiet. Every employee we had an encounter with was friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were clean and roomy. We didn't visit the pizza place because we couldn't take our dogs onto the dining deck and we didn't want to leave them on the boat alone, but I heard that the pizza there was very good. We will definitely stay again.

by jaldcroft on Jun 21, 2021
The docks are wider then is typical so it’s possible to sit and watch the day go by. The location is gorgeous and the walk to the south along the road to the path is great in any weather

by montanasalty on Jun 20, 2021
We had a super great stay at Deer Harbor. Friendly staff, dog friendly. We love it here.

by ralphp on Jun 02, 2021
Great little Marina. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Attentive staff always there to help with lines as you dock. Wide berths, excellent docks, good little store and a pizza place across the road. Not a lot else to do near the Marina, but it's easy to reserve a rental car and travel around Orcas.

by wendyc98282 on Jun 01, 2021
I would have given it 5 stars but even though there were open slips we were put between 2 large boats making it hard to manouver getting in there as we are only a 22 ft boat.

by floatsrboat on Jun 01, 2021
Deer Harbor continues to be our favorite getaway location. Dock staff are always helpful, showers are clean, the dock store is well stocked and the scenery...always beautiful and restful. The addition of a new yacht club dock provides breakwater protection for the guest floats.

by lmbbates on May 27, 2021
People are wonderful! We love it here. Definitely will be back!!

by dringler on May 26, 2021
Nice and quiet. Very good barbecue at the Deer Harbor Inn.

by cerise on May 24, 2021
Deer Harbor is a nice marina. It is clean without being fancy. The people are friendly. There is a little store that has most critical things you may need. There is an on-site pizza restaurant with great food. It was a good place to spend a couple nights while shrimping. We’ll be back.

by neilcarlsen on Sep 15, 2020
Easy booking through Dockwa. Called when in sight, prompt response and easy instructions. Nice guy caught our lines, welcomed us, and gave us a very cordial orientation. First Class marina!!!!!

by forrestfire on Sep 11, 2020

Great place good food and clean restrooms

by paulabafaro on Aug 31, 2020
The marina staff were friendly and helpful. Deer Harbor marina is charming, with clean bathrooms and showers, laundry facilities, food, store, and boat tours within steps. A wonderful jumping off point to exploring other islands as well.

by ourjourney on Aug 24, 2020
Dock staff met us pulling in and helped with the lines. Good docks. Store had the basics but not much more. Short hours for store.

by mjperry78 on Aug 20, 2020
Friendly dock staff and marina office folks. Easy to make reservation. Assignment made after hailing. Blowing 13 knots so line handlers were around to assist if needed. COVID made local restaurant options limited. Easy 1/2 mile walk to Deer Harbor Inn with nice outdoor patio. Marina facilities (Showers etc) open but didn’t feel up to cleanliness standards found other marinas on this trip. Water limited. No boat rinse and strongly suggested not to fill onboard fresh water tanks. However good option if linking up with fly-in family or friends with timeshare resort cabins above marina and seaplane service linking to Seattle. Post COVID access to resort pool BBQ area etc for marina guests will be nice addition.

by siskies5 on Aug 19, 2020
Will definitely be staying again. All the right amenities, and maintained beautifully during COVID. Will bring the family next time!

by ribboninthesky on Aug 16, 2020
Such an idyllic place hidden from the elements. The undertone of yesteryear with a quaint Harbor town being greeted by locals and the beauty of nature in the PNW. The marina staff are all very accommodating, pleasant and helpful. A must do while boating in the San Juan Islands.

by stevencacord on Aug 14, 2020
Great spot staff was great very friendly, the staff working the dock lines were the best in the islands

by mkclemens on Aug 14, 2020
Dock staff really good this year.

by seahager on Aug 13, 2020
We certainly enjoyed Deer Harbor. A nice slow pace after a couple of nights in Roche.

by dbw on Aug 13, 2020
Always nice and clean. Great help at the dock. Great pizza. Wonderful walks on county roads.

by albertjay on Aug 11, 2020
Friendly staff, helped us during our boat problem. Will come back

by tisaacs408 on Aug 11, 2020
First time to Deer Harbor Marina and it was outstanding! Extremely helpful and friendly staff that went out of their way to assist to make our visit memorial. Great facilities...clean, well maintained and stocked. Easy access to fuel and pump out point. Store and snack bar were great! Highly recommend a stopover. We will return in future San Juan Island cruises!👍😀

by jmestre2 on Aug 10, 2020
We love this marina! Very friendly and helpful staff, right on the dock when we arrived if we needed help. Store has Ice and enough provisions, great pizza and sandwiches to order up. Beautiful setting, nice hiking nearby and kayaking up or around the bay with lots of birds.

by xhrisd87 on Aug 10, 2020
Deer Harbor Marina is a treat. The showers and bathrooms are clean. Showers require purchase of a token. There is a small marina store on the dock with a pizza joint across the street. What we like most though is the laid back vibe of the place.

by ushewey13 on Aug 10, 2020
Wonderful place to stay for a few nights. Quite, clean and beautiful! We’ll definitely be back!

by aroosa on Aug 09, 2020

by zyzmjzbhqipqm1zyqovh on Aug 05, 2020
We love Deer Harbor and the staff are always friendly!

by crcora on Aug 04, 2020
Very helpful and courteous dock hands. WiFi was non existent, even using theirs. Ice was useless as it had holes in center of cube, no block ice.

by kgravendyk on Aug 04, 2020
Your marina staff is the best! The help getting moored the attitude the great response to any issues, they r the best. This is why we keep coming back.

Great crew and very safe during Covid-19 pandemic. Lovely harbor.

by mcjc on Jul 15, 2020
Dock conditions were good, staff was friendly, professional and helpful. Only "ding" is that wifi was not reliable

by aiwalker1234 on Jul 12, 2020
Loved it! Wonderful people! Great showers! Yummy food! Was happy the team there was supporting mask wearing. Thank you!

by lepf1226 on Jul 10, 2020

by mardigras on Jul 09, 2020
We love deer Harbor So quaint and Mark the manager is awesome

by adventres on Jul 07, 2020
Clean facilities and docks. Staff helpers assisting with your lines. Grocery is small, but has minimum supplies for your needs. Grill/cafe has good grill food and yummy Lopez island ice cream! Love the hot showers. Slightly priced high for a small place. Overall, great location and marina.

by 8019668498 on Jul 02, 2020
Good except for wearing the stupid masks and social distancing.

by michaeel on Sep 18, 2019
Great Marina, friendly staff. Had to pay for showers which should be included in slip fees.

by mar0997 on Aug 14, 2019
Very clean and beautiful area. Complete with pool and excellent staff. Would have liked to see more selection in the store, but it must also be hard to stock a store for a limited population.

by margozink on Jul 28, 2019
Nice marina with grill onsite and transient public bus service on Fri Sat Sun to tour island Delicious dinner at Deer Harbor Inn Restaurant with courtesy car pick up from marina

by abarduhn on Jul 17, 2019
