You don't have to spend all of your time in Seattle. The island has plenty to offer, on a quieter, more laid-back scale. Restaurants, pubs, cafes and coffee houses are mere steps from the marina. (Literally, like maybe 2 dozen steps.) Wander a block or so further and you'll be in the center of our quaint little island town with world-class restaurants, boutiques, bakeries, coffee shops, bookstores, galleries, jewelers, movie theaters, free concerts in the park and a Saturday Farmer's Market in the summer, and our new art museum. Kayak and stand-up paddle board rentals are right next door. And bike rentals are only 2 blocks away.
For those on foot or bike:
Oh Joy II is only a few blocks from the Bainbridge Ferry Terminal and even closer to the rest of Winslow. Access from Sea-Tac airport is as easy as taking the light rail into downtown Seattle's University Street Station, strolling to the ferry dock a few blocks away and taking the short trip to Bainbridge Island. Once on the island you can amble through the waterfront park right to the dock where Oh Joy II will be waiting for you. (She'll be excited, but she'll calm down if you scratch her behind the mast.)
For those with wheels:
If you're driving, free parking is adjacent to the marina.
What to expect when you arrive:
We'll meet you at the marina to help you settle in for your stay, explain the mysteries of the marine toilet and answer your questions. Then we'll get out of your hair. (But we're only 10 minutes away, so we're ready to assist you with whatever you may need.)
