Excellent Protection in All Conditions

Gig harbor is extremely well protected anchorage during any conditions you would expect in Puget Sound. The natural surrounding here are pristine and it offers some amazing views of Mt. Rainier. The town itself is mainly a tourist attraction for landlubbers from the Seattle/Tacoma area. 

There are a number of anchorages and marinas in the harbor, but we prefer to Arabellas Landing if were staying in a slip. Otherwise, we prefer to anchor right in the middle of the harbor. The anchorage is large with room to swing in about 20 to 30 feet and a mud bottom. 

Finding the entrance to the harbor can be a bit tricky when approaching from the north, but there is a small lighthouse and a handful of cabins at the entrance. Stay in the middle of the channel to avoid the shallow water at the sides of the entrance.
