So, you’ve been gifted something from Dock & Bay and want to exchange it with something else…no worries at all! We understand that even with all of love and care that has been put into this gift, it might not have been that special item you’ve been eyeing up, and that’s just fine. 

Lucky for you, we’re here to help. We’ve been working on something to help make exchanging your gift as easy as can be. There are a few steps, but it’ll be worth it…

  1. The most important part of the process is the order number, without this we won’t be able to make the exchange. This part may be the hardest, as it’ll take a little snooping, but you’ve got this. Once you have the order number, please email your exchange request to
  2. As soon as we receive the order number, we can help with a returns process for the item. If it’s a like-for-like item, we will simply swap it for you.
  3. If you are wanting to swap the item for something completely different on our website, we can provide a gift code in exchange for the return. With this code, you can finally get that Beach Towel, Bath Towel, Picnic Blanket, Poncho, Dog Towel, Hair Wrap, Cooling Towel, Tea Towel, Kids Towel, Bathrobe, Wash Mitt, Makeup Remover, Tote Bag, Makeup Headband *tries to catch breath* that you’ve always wanted.
  4. Please note, we cannot issue a refund as this will be refunded to the card the purchase was made with, which would alert your gifter.

WARNING: Due to this process, there is always a chance that the original purchaser may get notified. However, our team will work incredibly diligently to make sure that does not happen.

Personalised items are non-refundable, even if you make a mistake, so please double triple check everything is perfect before placing an order!

If you receive a product which isn’t up to standard, please get in touch via our contact us page, and include your order number, a short description and some photos, so our team can sort this for you.

Our guarantee does not cover issues caused by general wear-and-tear, such as staining.

Products & Care

Other 'quick dry' towels that we've used in the past haven't been so effective. They tend to have quite a rough texture and feel horrible on any patches of dry skin. Then when you try to dry yourself down, the towel becomes slimy. Ew. That's why we've come in to completely change the game.

Our towels feel totally different to what you might expect from a Quick Dry. In fact, we even get customers emailing in saying they aren't sure of the soft, smooth material and whether it'll be effective. We always reply with 'use the towel... trust us, you will love it!' and they do.

Dock & Bay towels are packed full of features which are simply down to how they are made. We can guarantee that they are quick-dry, super absorbent, smooth against the skin, sand-free (it brushes right off!), compact for travel and easy to care for.

But don't take it from us, you'll probably think we are biased. Try them yourself! With our 12 month warranty, you don't have anything to lose.

Absolutely nothing! Ok, not quite nothing, but they are all pretty similar!

Our stripy range (so Cabana, Summer and seasonal designs) and the Essential towels are all made from the same material, 100 recycled and planet friendly!

Our magic cooling towels are infused with jade stone to keep you cool for up to 6hrs (even through those sweaty workouts!).

All of our terrific towels are sand-free, they are quick drying, super-absorbent, they won't hold on to any nasty odours and they pack down into a cute compact pouch for travel.

All of these towels (not to mention the Hair Wraps and Ponchos) feel super soft and smooth against the skin, and no, they don't feel like the microfibre cloths you might have in your cleaning cupboard.

All ponchos are designed to be slightly baggy making it easier to change under. The below is a rough guideline:

  • Size 6 to 14 - Medium
  • Size 14+ - Large

Stains can always be tough on white but after a few cool washes, our towels are able to be washed on a higher heat up to 60 degrees. That, coupled with a good stain lifting powder, should leave your towels sparkling. ✨🌈

The essentials for taking care of your Dock & Bay are:

  • Cold machine wash (under 30 degrees). After the first few washes it's ok to turn up the heat.
  • The pouches are hand wash only and should not go in the washing machine.
  • Don't mix your white shirt or dress with a coloured towels (or coloured anything), it can lead to tears! We also recommend not washing our stripy towels and block colour towels in the same wash. Just to be on the safe side!
  • Try not to use fabric softener, as over time it can reduce the absorbency of the towel. Using fabric softener will not destroy your towel the first time it is used, but over time, it can degrade the performance of your product, and we want it to last as long as possible for you!
  • Do not bleach, or put near fire or hot implements.
  • Tumble drying is ok if you need to, but air-drying is kinder to our products.

When the towel is new, we recommend that you follow the fold lines that are already in it, to use as a guide. Hopefully you'll pick up the technique quickly!

We have a handy little video over on our TikTok which should help! But, if you're having any trouble, just get in touch with via our contact us page for more information.

  • Small: 100x50cm, 250g and packs into a 20x11cm pouch
  • Large: 160x90cm, 380g and packs into a 26x15cm pouch 
  • Extra Large: 200x90cm, 475g and packs into 30x16cm pouch
  • Cooling: 69x33cm, 100g
  • Hair Wrap: 63x29cm - one size fits all!

All these details and more can be found on the size guide on our product pages.

Our products are designed in-house in our London head office, by our amazing design team (with a lot of opinions from the rest of the team!) and manufactured by our awesome team in China!

No. All our products are regularly tested for harmful Azo Dyes through Intertek testing.

All our factories have to complete regular ethical audits to ensure working standards are maintained. These are often done through both Sedex and Amfori BSCI. 

You must have great taste ;)

If you go to the product page and click on the size, you should see a box to enter your email to receive a notification when they're back in stock. That way you'll be the first to hear!

All of our Quick Dry towels, ponchos and hair wraps can be personalised (not including charity collaborations)!

The cost is added to your item total and ranges from £8 for initials (up to 3 characters) and £10 for up to 12 characters (including spaces). Please note that all personalisation will be printed in upper case only.

Please note that we do not tolerate any expletives or offensive language on personalised products and we have the right to refuse personalisation and cancel the order at our discretion

Personalisation will increase your delivery time by up to 5 working days so express shipping is not available for these orders.

For more information and to see which towels can't yet be personalised check out our personalisation page

They do indeed! Every product in each set will come packaged in its own pouch or gift box (depending on the products ordered).

100% Recycled Material

We have successfully finished transitioning all of our products to be made from 100% recycled material. This means that instead of the towels being woven from thread made of virgin (new) plastic, it is going to be made from recycled, post-consumer plastic.

To find out more, check out the 100% recycled page here.

We are passionate about #doingourbit for the world we live in and reducing our environmental footprint wherever we can. It has always been a goal of ours to create products from something that would have otherwise been filling up landfills. It took a little time to get the new material perfect and it wasn’t an overnight process but now we’re happy the material is up to scratch and the same quality quick-dry fabric that you know and love.

By recycling plastic which already exists, as opposed to creating new plastic to make items from synthetic materials, you do a whole load of good. Less waste in our oceans and in landfill, a reduction in CO2 emissions, saving petroleum, better energy conservation and even the creation of jobs are just some of our favourites.
