“Marina filled with all sizes of yachts!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Spent a few hours walking the docks at the Roche Harbor Marina looking at the mega yachts, sailing vessels, and "baby 50' boats." Friendly boaters proud of their water transportation. If you are boating in the San Juan Islands and venturing into Canadian waters, Roche Harbor is the place to clear customs back to the US. Cool flag ceremony at the end of the day.

“it's quaint”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I guess this is big with the yachting crowd. I had dinner over looking the flag ceremony and the sunset at Madrona bar and grill two nights. Beware the cannon. Both nights i was startled and spilled my drink on myself. hahahaha

“Perfect on 4th of july week”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Very patriotic and special. Well worth watching! Beautiful harbor. Almost surreal. A lot of people this week so it was crowded but still good visibility. Love the Canadian flags as well.

“Roche Harbor, the BEST 4th of July venue ever!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

An amazing venue for families, kids and couples. The 4th of July has games for kids of all ages (that would include adults), and a 5k run. A colors ceremony each night at the main dock tops off the evening. The setting is beautiful. Nested in a small peaceful harbor, this well managed resort has a swimming pool, playground, and small shops, some offering local artwork. We have gone there for years...at least 20, and love it. On the Island you can buy fresh oysters, dungeness crab to prepare yourself, or choose from several restaurants that offer fresh produce and seafood. There is a zip line, a park where you can view whales in their natural habitat and there are historical sites unique to the island. You might want to bring your bikes. If you tire of Roche Harbor take a day trip on the ferry to one of the neighboring islands, each having a style of its own. Roche is magical !

“Nice Tradition”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I'm a sucker for a little ceremony. I love Colors at Roche Harbor. Just stop and enjoy the retiring of the flags each night, and if your lucky you might see the staff jump in the water after. It only happens a few times each summer, although always on the last Saturday of the season.
