WA State Parks Boating Guide Survey

Please see the notice and survey below from the Washington State Parks….

Ahoy, boaters!

Can you spare a few moments?

Did you know that Washington State Parks manages 19 marine state parks and numerous parks with boating access, such as freshwater lakes and marine shorelines?

We’re looking to publish a comprehensive Boating Guide to give you more information about these parks, such as what types of moorage are available, what kinds of amenities can be found, how much it costs for overnight moorage and more.

But before we proceed, we’d like to know if there’s a genuine interest from boaters like you.

Please fill out our survey and let us know if you’d be interested in a Washington State Parks Boating Guide.

The survey takes just 5 minutes. By filling it out, you are eligible to win a free life jacket. Deadline to complete the survey is Friday, Jan. 15.

Thank you!

Canadian Border Remains Closed

The closure to boaters has been extended another 30 days, again, until Sept 20th.  Unfortunately, this has put a huge strain on the harbors and parks in the San Juans, but I’m sure the businesses appreciate the patronage during these times.

The Canadian small businesses are no doubt suffering, as the American boater is a huge part of their clientele.  Next year when Canada opens up, do your part to help them out…buying fuel, groceries, eating and dining out.
