About the Port of Port Townsend

The Mission of the Port of Port Townsend is to serve the citizens of Jefferson County by responsibly maintaining and developing property and facilities to promote sustainable economic growth, to provide community access to Port facilities and services, and to protect and maintain our community resources and maritime heritage.

The Port of Port Townsend is located on the northeast corner of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, one of the nation’s best maritime destinations.  Whether you are visiting our classic Victorian seaport for the first time as a tourist, are here for business, or have lived here for years, we are here to provide the services you need.

From our offices at the Point Hudson Marina in Port Townsend, we own and operate a diverse group of facilities, including:

  • Three marinas (two in Port Townsend, one in Quilcene)
  • A marine trades industrial area at the Port Townsend Boat Haven
  • Jefferson County International Airport
  • An RV park at Point Hudson Marina
  • Boat launches at several sites around eastern Jefferson County
  • Union Wharf and City Dock in downtown Port Townsend

Whether you’re here as part of a tall ship crew, bringing a vessel in for a haul-out and complete refit, flying in for a special weekend, looking for a place to hook up your RV with a salt water and mountain view, motoring in for a meal at one of our city’s many fine restaurants, or bringing your boat into town for the annual Wooden Boat Festival, we and our tenant businesses are here to support you.

Home to many of the best boat building and maintaining craftsmen and women in the world, the festival-filled Victorian seaport of Port Townsend and our facilities combine to make us the very best recreation and boat maintenance choice in the Puget Sound region. Many of the marine trades firms who are located within our facilities specialize in working with wooden boats of all eras. Others do much of their work with more modern materials and leading edge technologies. Whatever your maritime needs, you’ll be able to have them met here.

In addition to our maritime and aviation business centers, we are responsible for economic development at our locations in Jefferson County.  If you are seeking a location for your new or expanding business, please get in touch to learn how we can assist you in making the move to our wonderful area.
