The Jurien Bay Boat Harbour provides safe and convenient vessel accommodation, fuelling and maintenance facilities for charter, tourism, fishing and recreational vessels. 

The harbour also offers 4 service jetties, a four-lane boat ramp, a public beach, public toilets and car park.

Jurien Bay is located 220 kilometres north of Perth and has many nearby islands and reefs, making it popular for fishing, diving and snorkelling. The Jurien Bay Marine Park is also home to Australian sea lions, seabirds, dolphins and whales.
