A visit to Rosario Resort is a must when planning a boating adventure in the San Juan Islands. The Rosario Marina is located on tranquil Cascade Bay halfway up East Sound's eastern shore on Orcas Island. The distant grandeur of the historic Moran Mansion guides boaters to Rosario as they enter East Sound. The marina offers over 36 slips, eight mooring buoys, safe anchorage and a warm welcome.
We are currently on winter rates, so no reservation is required. Groups and clubs should call ahead if planning a fall or spring outing. If you wish to book for the Summer 2014 season (May 23 - September 14, 2014), please go to the "Book Now" button to the left and fill in your desired dates. If you are calling and get our answering machine, please include your requested arrival date, departure date, number of nights, boat length and beam (LOA needed), sail or power, first name, last name, home phone number, and cell phone number if available. We will return your call or email and let you know if we have space to confirm your requested reservation dates. Due to heavy summer traffic, all boats in the harbor area wishing to use moorage facilities at Rosario Resort need to contact “Rosario Harbormaster” by VHF radio on channel 78A prior to entering the marina. At the time of your reservation, one night’s deposit will be taken. If you decide to cancel your reservation, a full refund on the deposit is available if intent to cancel or modify the reservation is received by phone or email at the Rosario Marina Reservation Desk by 8:00 p.m. seven days prior to the arrival date.
