Living in the Pacific Northwest, chances are you may have a boater, fisherman, or sailor on your holiday list. If you’re hunting for the perfect gift for the captain in your life, we have a few ideas that are both nautical and nice!
The Puddle Jump Original “Puddle Proof” Tote is the bag that started it all! This tote stands up and open when empty, extends vertically, cinches horizontally, rolls up compactly, is light weight and machine washable. You have the option to order a bag in a color or from an upcycled white sail cloth. They are all made with marine grade fabric and hardware on Vancouver Island. These bags are available online and at the Van Isle Marina Fuel Dock.
Gumdrop – Waterproof iPad Case
The Marine series from Gumdrop is a bit of an investment but if you need ruggedness and water protection, they have you covered. Both the front and the rear portions of the tablet are completely encased, the front with an integrated screen protector that extends the touch sensitivity of the iPad Air. The case is built with an adjustable stand that can mount to surfaces, with a quick release mechanism that allows for easy access.
Lake Art – Wooden Service Tray
Lake Art is a family owned and operated business (like Van Isle Marina!) located in Harbor Springs, Michigan. They have a collection of over 5,000 bathymetric maps that they beautifully craft into service trays, wall art and much more. This particular tray shows the Gulf Islands and San Juan Island and would make a wonderful addition to your home or your boat. They are available online or at the Van Isle Marina Fuel Dock.
Last but not least, you cannot go wrong with a gift card! Van Isle Marina gift cards can be purchased from the Marina Office or the Fuel Dock for any denomination. They can be used towards Fuel, Haul-Outs, Detailing, Moorage and much more.
