About Us

The Port of Edmonds boat marina was created in 1962. It provides the only public boating access in the highly populated 30-mile stretch between Seattle’s Shilshole Bay and the Port of Everett. The Port is governed by a five-member board of Commissioners. The Commissioners are elected by the voters of the Port District for four year terms.
