  • The positive hubbub, generated by the sailors working feverishly on their boats, is a wonderful place to be. Small boat rentals are available, Wed.-Sun.10:00am -6:00pm. The outstanding contribution this Center has been to Port Townsend, is immeasurable. Add the stunning views, and you have a magnificent place to enjoy.
  • One of the rudest people I've ever had the displeasure of meeting was in the boat shop. I'm sure they do interesting work there, but I wouldn't know based on the jerk that "greeted" us.
  • This place is so amazing, me and my wife her friend, it just so amazing how they open out for people to watch them built boats and a lot kind of object you use on the ocean, they can teach you how to do it. If you want to. They have information there you can visit there website to be able to start.
  • A great place. Organizes the annual wooden boat festival which is a total blast. The boat shop always has boat repair or building going on. Offers on the water training for kids, youth and adults. Chandlery with lots of great great. Amazing coffee bar. Boat house, dedicated pier. Lots more. Enjoy.
  • Beautiful building to house some educational work. I always come for the Wooden Boat Festival and they normally have boats on display that are being repaired. It is not everyone's cup of tea, but I love it.
