About West Marine

West Marine was founded in California in 1968. It is a retail chain focused on the sale of boating and fishing supplies and electronics, as well as water sport supplies. Its products range from kayaks and boat parts, to fishing rods, to wetsuits, to insulated lunch bags & coolers, to GPS/navigation systems, to portable speakers and stereo systems, to sunscreen, and everything in between.

At the moment, approximately 250 West Marine locations exist throughout the United States (including 2 in Puerto Rico), with its 10 locations throughout Canada having closed in recent years. Some prominent existing locations include the stores in San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Honolulu, Woburn, Pensacola, and Fort Lauderdale (the largest boating store in the U.S.).

West Marine stands out from its competitors by being the largest specialty retailer of boating and fishing supplies, equipment, and accessories in the world, thanks to its customer base both within and outside of the United States. Unlike some of its closest competitors, the company managed to stay afloat over the years—including during the Great Recession of 2007-2009.
