Buoy Your Hand Towel Game

Made of extra-absorbent, triple-ply tissue, this stack of 30 disposable hand towels is decorated with colorful, jaunty illustrations of nautical flags and buoy designs that would complement any galley, head, or beach cabin with a refreshing maritime theme. Each towel in this “Burgees & Buoys” collection from Nautical Luxuries is printed in Germany, using non-toxic, water-soluble dyes and food-safe inks. The biodegradable and compostable towels are also certified by the Forest Stewardship Council for using environmentally conscious raw materials, so you know you and your guests won’t harm the fragile Salish Sea ecosystem at your next summer boating party. $20 // nauticalluxuries.com

Holy Splat! These Oysters Are Hama Hama Hot

Northwesterners who love, love, love local oysters know the name Hama Hama. Now you can bring a taste of this legendary Hood Canal shellfish farm home with your own bottle of Splat! Seen on all the tables at Hama Hama Oyster Saloon in Lilliwaup, Washington, Splat sauces are all made in Olympia by chili-pepper wunderkind Courtney Jafferian and tailored to pair perfectly with any kind of savory cuisine. Splat creates all of its sauces with locally sourced, organic ingredients and ferments them for six to eight months in stainless-steel vats to add the ideal amount of kick to your favorite seafood delights. We’re partial to the classic Mignonette flavor synonymous with oyster delicacies, but Splat also offers sauces with Anaheim, jalapeno, and serrano peppers. $11 per 4 oz. bottle // hamahamaoysters.com

Keep Gear High & Dry with Mustang

Two separate, waterproof compartments help you organize and secure all gear with an interior roll-top and exterior drawstring enclosures. Adjustable, padded shoulder and sternum straps allow you to customize the fit for all-day, hands-free use on your next adventure.  $165 // mustangsurvival.com

SeaVees Baja Slip-Ons Go Vegan

SeaVees’ latest twist on the casual summertime classic slip-on is made of long-lasting vegan nubuck leather alternative materials, with extra-wide perforations to allow for ample cooling airflow when the temperatures rise.

The polyurethane/nylon uppers and 60-percent recycled cotton canvas linings are so light, you’ll barely feel them on your feet. To also add a spring to your step, SeaVees is a 1% for the Planet member, so a percentage of its Baja shoe revenues are donated to environmental causes. Available in either a stylish camel or blue color. $80 // seavees.com

Goods + Gear Clutch

Clutch Combo: Chocolat à l’orange

Chocolate and orange are an irresistible combination. Wildwood Oyster Co. and Rugged Seas have teamed up to add a maritime sheen to this classic color pairing with this adorable clutch. Made from Wildwood Oyster’s fine Kodiak leather and scraps recycled from real Rugged Seas fisher bib overalls, the two-tone case measures 11-by-5-inches—just large enough to carry everyday essentials. A third splash of color comes from a teal dock-line wristlet, secured to a removable brass shackle and oversized zipper. The iconic orange bib material denotes indestructibility; the leather suggests timeless elegance. Both sides combine for a unique tribute to your love of the world’s oceans and all who make an honest living from its bounty. $168 // ruggedseas.com

(Floatin’ On) the Dock of the Bay

Sometimes we want a pool. Sometimes we want an island. Sometimes we want a pool and an island, while floating in the sea. Funboy can give you all three luxurious options with these Leisure Island floating docks and hammocks. Measuring 7.5-feet in diameter and capable of holding four people or up to 600 pounds, the Floating Dock inflates manually in less than three minutes, providing a solid surface for lounging out of the water, including a removeable semicircular backrest. The Floating Hammock features an inflated outer ring surrounding a heavy-duty mesh that allows the cool water to flow through, providing you with comfortable, partially submerged support. The portable platforms can be rolled up inside travel bags when not in use. Turn up the Otis Redding and watch the tide roll away this summer. $600-$700 // funboy.com
