Around since the 1920s, the marina is the heart of the Boston Harbor neighborhood and provides a relaxing, beautiful destination highlighting this region's natural beauty. Located about 7 miles north of Olympia, Boston Harbor Marina sports amazing views of the Sound set against the backdrop of the magnificent Olympic Mountain Range.
Boston Harbor Marina is one of the only public access marinas in our area. Come down to the classic wooden docks and take a stroll among the boats to get a closer view of the amazing marine wildlife. On a good day you can see crabs, sea slugs, anemones, starfish, herons, otters, bald eagles, seals, the occasional sea lion, and even orcas (if you're really really lucky!). Our scenic covered deck provides a great view of the South Puget Sound, and is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy our vast selection of craft beers or vintage sodas. This is where we host local bands and breweries on Friday nights in the summer.
Whether you're looking to bring the kids for a fun day playing on the beach and discovering our marine creatures, or if you're looking to have an adventure out on the water on one of our paddleboards or kayaks, or if you're just looking to relax with a great beer and enjoy the view, Boston Harbor Marina is where you want to be!
