Summertide Resort and Marina

Welcome to Summertide Resort and Marina located in Tahuya, Washington on the Hood Canal.

2021 Shrimp Season and new Marina Policy

Shrimp Season/Open Days and Times:

Open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 19, May 22, June 2, June 5, and June 16 in 2021

SummerTide Resort is beginning a phase of dock re-construction. This summer we have limited berthing and truck/trailer parking. With other ramp closures on the Hood Canal we expect congestion during these dates. To respect neighboring properties and resort guests the SummerTide boat ramp and docks will be closed between 10pm and 5am. It won’t be possible to launch the entire fishing fleet between 5-8am so please formulate alternate plans or be ready to work together with other boaters to make it a successful period for everyone.

Fishing permits are NO LONGER sold at SummerTide Resort so please go to the Washington Fish and Wildlife website to purchase it on-line:

We have a limited number of used shrimp pots for sale. Please enquire at the marina store.

Marina berthing: With less dock space this season you may be required to “raft” up to another boat. We will have a dock master organizing docking. Please pack extra dock lines and fenders as this will help making sure everyone has a place. If you plan to launch and haul out on the same day you may only be granted 5 minutes at the guest dock (west side). Overnight moorings will be $2 per foot per night. (Typical fishing boats will range from $25-$40 per night.)

Launch Ramp Information Our launch ramp requires a minimum of a 3 foot tide or higher. We require all boats launching to have a qualified trailer driver in the car at all times and a minimum of 1 person operating the boat on and off the trailer. This will insure speedy launching and help everyone get out on the water in time for the shrimp!

We are working to secure extra off-site truck and trailer parking and a shuttle to help.
