Coastal:   From our office in Shelton, Washington (at the base of the peninsula, just a few miles northwest of Olympia) we serve the coastal ports of Grays Harbor - Hoquiam, Westport, Aberdeen, as well as Olympia, Gig Harbor, Tacoma, Bremerton, Port Orchard, Port Townsend, and Port Angeles. We are also in relatively close proximity to the various small marinas on Hood Canal and the southern reaches of Puget Sound.

Inland:   Western Washington is blessed with thousands of lakes and many miles of rivers. Our location provides easy access to the I-5 corridor between Portland, OR and Olympia, WA, and easy access to Hwy 101 which loops around the peninsula.

Secondary Areas of Service:

Auto travel from Olympia to Seattle is through a very congested and slow I-5 access or by way of Bremerton-Seattle ferry. We will gladly accept assignments for Seattle or areas north, but it should be noted in advance travel costs may be relatively high.


Remote Areas:

Washington is divided north to south by the Cascade Mountain Range. There are only a few highways that cross this range. Most of the highways across the mountains are closed in winter and all are subject to heavy weather closure. There is a major highway along the Columbia River (on the Oregon side) that is usually open. Travel from our office to eastern Washington must generally be scheduled as an overnight trip. Charter air service is available from the city in which our office is located and may be cost effective in some circumstances.

Eastern Washington has numerous lakes and rivers, many boating opportunities, and very few Marine Surveyors. We are willing to provide service to inland (remote) locations, and invite your inquiries. We are happy to discuss logistics and estimated travel costs for multiple boat inspections or large loss attendances and will work with you to help your inland boaters.
