Recreational Boating Information for the Northwest

Oakland Bay Marina is located in the harbor of Shelton, WA. The Marina is an excellent facility for both long term and day use and is well positioned to launch recreational boaters into Hammersly Inlet. 

​Note: Hammersley Inlet, is an arm of water leading to Shelton. Inlet is the only artery through which all water must flow between the Oakland Bay and the greater Puget Sound. As tides change, they force the water through narrow, winding, shallow, Hammersley, producing erratic currents up to 5 kn. With proper planning, a depth sounder, and care, Hammersley can be navigated without incident. Mariners are advised to create a route, and stick to it. Mid to high tide is recommended. 

Shelton Yacht Club is located at the head of Hammersley Inlet in Oakland Bay with new reciprocal dock.
