Port Townsend's Point Hudson marina docks & facilities are home to the NW Maritime Center/Wooden Boat Foundation, plus it's Chandlery/bookstore, and a few of its various wooden boats.  With the marina located at the foot of downtown Port Townsend, there is plenty of walking, shopping, and dining opportunities close by. For those preferring to walk beaches, the other direction can take you to Point Wilson and Fort Worden State Park and the Strait.

For anyone driving and coming without a boat:

Driving/coming by ferry from Whidbey Island:  The Port Townsend/Keystone route puts you right downtown!  They will still be running a smaller than normal ferry, so driving on will probably involve some serious lines.  The reservation system is the way to go -- check out the state ferries website if you expect to bring a car using this ferry.  If you want to come as a walk on but need a pickup from the ferry let us know & we can try to work something out.

From points south coming across the Hood Canal Bridge:

Port Townsend is another 25 miles via Hwy's 104 and 19 once you cross the Hood Canal Bridge.  PT is roughly 40 miles by car from Kingston, or 55 from the Bainbridge ferry terminal.  From Sea-Tac, it's a good several hour drive via the Tacoma Narrows, or there is a shuttle to the Olympic Peninsula/Port Townsend.  Summer Friday night ferries can be a bear with any of these routes -- so plan-to-plan your travel for late morning or midday. 

Lodging: -- There are several options for lodging in the immediate area.  A good resource is www.ptguide.com.   A few of the closest, walk able places are:  The Commanders Beach House (www.commandersbeachhouse.com), The Swan, or The Bishop Hotel.  Hudson Point also has RV/camp sites on the point adjacent to the marina.  You can reserve them at the Marina contact number above, but they do fill up fast, plan early.  Making reservations for any lodging early is advisable.
