Approach: The approach to Sequim Bay is on the south side of the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Port Townsend and Port Angeles, west of Protection Island. In December 2015 the coast guard made changes to the navigation system for Sequim bay by replacing the floating buoys with rigid more visible dayboards. The new Sequim Bay Entrance light #2 displays a red light flashing every 4 seconds, has a nominal range of 4 nm and red triangular dayboards. There is a spit which blocks the entrance to Sequim Bay, lying in an east-west direction. The channel lies parallel to this spit and is marked by Sequim Bay Entrance light #2 and Sequim Bay Entrance daybeacon #4 ( also displaying red triangular dayboards). Do not cut between these markers. Follow the channel daybeacons (displaying dayboards) to enter the bay and stay in the channel, as there is a shallow area east of the marked channel. The marina is located at approximately Lat 48 deg 03.99 min, Lo 123 deg 02.22 min, on the west side of the bay. Enter the marina and stop at the first dock or the gas dock and check in with the Harbormaster for slip assignment.
