Our Story

We’re Dock & Bay but our friends call us Andy & Benno and what an amazing day it is for us to have you on our site! We’re this great up and coming beach & travel apparel company, founded by 2 guys that have travelled around the world before clashing minds in London! An Aussie and a Brit, what more do you need?

We’re not a big corporate company (quite the opposite) that churn out products for fun, we really care about everything we do. If you’re talking to Dock & Bay, you’re talking to the 2 of us, simple as that. We genuinely love our products and believe you will too.

We’re passionate about travelling because we genuinely believe that travel and experiencing new things should be a core part of everyone’s lives and we wouldn’t be here today without it. Let the adventures begin.

Behind the Brand

Andy & Benno, a Brit & Ozzie, started Dock & Bay by pulling a red curtain off the wall and sticking pieces of white paper to it to design their first towel. The beginning of a journey that led them to create high end, timelessly designed, quick drying towels - the first of their kind. As best mates, it doesn't feel like a job but a lifestyle.

"From banking to beach towels, what a crazy journey it’s been. I’ve never been one to sit still or feel content with the norm and Dock & Bay was the biggest leap yet. I’ve always believed that life is more fun when you take risks. There is nothing more exhilarating than putting it all on the line for something you truly believe in.

Whilst friends were buying houses, I've always been buying the next hostel room, exploring everything that the world has to offer. With a strong belief that new experiences are much more rewarding than any item. Travel has always been at the heart of everything I do and has inspired Dock & Bay throughout. It’s what got us here today.

I’m excited to build a brand that people recognise worldwide and help others along my journey. Check out my personal blog to hear more about how it all began.”

"I love a bit of adventure, have a small appetite for risk, and the capacity to make a rash decision - or two. Starting Dock & Bay with Andy was all of these things. We decided to go for it.

The last 10 years I've lived the travellers life, with a healthy portion of corporate life mixed in.  Travelling to so many corners of the world always reminds me of how lucky I've been, and how much I've never seen.  But I've hiked up Machu Piccu, cycled Alp d'Huez and eaten steak in Argentina, so know I've lived a lucky life.  An awesome 5 years living in London was amazing, but I'm back in Sydney to continue the journey.

One year on and it still gets me excited to see travellers with our towels in a hostel, or a family at the beach. Thanks for joining us - keep smiling"
