Being an oceanfront community, we see a lot of both locally-based and visiting boating enthusiasts. Point Roberts is perfectly situated as a base from which to explore the many beautiful locations in Puget Sound and the Strait of Georgia including, of course, the San Juan Islands and the Canadian Gulf Islands. In fact, many of us think Point Roberts offers the most accessible island life of them all! At Seabright Farm, we think boating is one of the great outdoor recreation opportunities our residents can enjoy, but there are some important mooring and docking limitations to be aware of.
A critical point to understand is that much of the Point Roberts shoreline is classified under protected environment status, including that beautiful beach at the foot of Seabright Farm that you access with those fun and funky stairs. Respecting this designation is important to maintaining the health of our shores, as shoreline erosion is a serious environmental concern that could cause major damage to our community. The big restriction is that boats are prohibited from mooring along the shoreline, although kayaks and canoes can be pulled up on the beaches.
The best location, then, for mooring your boat is at the Point Roberts Marina, located within an easy, five-minute drive of Seabright Farm. The marina offers berthing for vessels up to 150 feet, free pump-out facilities and a full service repair and chandlery shop. The on-site Point Roberts Yacht Club also offers mooring services for yachts. Mooring is complimentary for up to 48 hours. More information can be found at their website.
