Cruise, ride another vessel or fly to Decatur Island!  For those cruising from Vancouver Boat Festival to the Victoria Festival, we have place for you to stop and relax in the San Juan Islands.

Here are some preliminary details for the event.  Please call us if planning to attend so we can plan for people and events.

Tuesday 28th
Arrivals either at Read’s Bay (west side of Decatur Island) or Davis Bay  (East side).  Read’s Bay has the Decatur Shores Community Association Dock.  Touch and go with no overnights, but dinghy’s can stay on the dock if room.  Davis Bay arrivals may beach near the County Boat ramp.  Anchor off shore.
