Support Local Businesses

One of the wonderful things about small towns is the opportunity to support local business and help keep financial resources in the area instead of distant corporate headquarters. Wherever you may go, support local businesses – and while you’re in the Bodega Bay area, here is a two-page Coastal Services Guide to local tradespeople that have been recommended by our local clients (navigation is at the bottom of page 1).

Below the Guide is a list of local businesses with links to their websites…
