The City of Bainbridge Island, in conjunction with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, established an Open Water Mooring and Anchoring Area (OWMAA) in Eagle Harbor in 2010. When the island lost one of its most treasured residents in 2017, Dave Ullin, the marina was renamed in his honor. Click here to read the story.
In 1999, the City Council directed the Harbor Commission to designate an open water moorage and anchorage area in Eagle Harbor for recreational vessels and citizens who live aboard their vessels. Vessels anchored or moored over public bedlands are also subject to Department of Natural Resources (DNR) requirements. See also 2018 DUOWM buoy project page.
