Our beautiful coastal city is located just 20 minutes south of Seattle, WA. We sit at the edge of the blue waters of Puget Sound, and are surrounded by the snowy peaks of the Olympic mountains and majestic Mt. Rainier. The dazzling Des Moines Marina is home to large sailing yachts, as well as small fishing boats for family fun. A delicious variety of fresh seafood restaurants, and boutique shopping, make up the downtown Marina district.
Coordinates for our water-side entrance are: LA 47 degrees 24.106 N, L 122 degrees 20.8 W. Des Moines also owns and operates the Redondo Boat Launch, a concrete ramp launch a few miles to the south.
If you are interested in permanent wet moorage, slip sizes range from 20-50 feet, and you can chose from open or covered slips. Upland, we have 105 dry sheds for boats up to 20 long. For your convenience, we maintain a waiting list for all permanent moorage slips and the upland storage facilities. Contact the Marina office for more information.
Our fuel dock offers gasoline, diesel, propane, lubricants, potable water, and snacks. There is a free waste pump-out station at the fuel dock. Other amenities include shore power 30A, cable television, showers and restrooms.

Presently all guest moorage is available on a first-come basis, however, if your vessel is 32 feet or longer or if you have a group of 5 or more boats we will take reservations.
