As a full-service Marina, Woodley Island is the largest marina in all of Humboldt Bay! Every facility and service you can imagine can be found here at this top-notch Marina. If you love traveling along the California Coast by boat, this is a must-stop area. It's also a lovely spot for a stroll as you admire the coming and going of ships and park. Additionally, there is a hip and modern cafe nearby with incredible views.

About Woodley Island

Woodley Island is open to the public, 365 days of the year. Not only is Woodley Island the largest Marina in Humboldt, but the Bay itself is the second largest in the State. It offers slips for both commercial and recreational vessels as well as guest docking. Make sure to double-check if you'll be in the area during open season - you'll be able to purchase fresh seafood right off the boat! There is plenty going on all year round.

Even if you don't have a boat of your own, this is a note-worthy spot to add to your bucket list for a peaceful outing. Sit in the park area which has grass and benches and unwind to the sound of the boats coming and going. Or, meditate to the sound of still water and birds flying above. Most of the island is protected since it's home to dozens of bird species. It's a bird-watchers paradise, especially when over 100,000 birds migrate through the area!
