New Downtown Marina

The Port of Bellingham is planning to build a new downtown marina as part of the Waterfront District project. This marina will be built in a future phase of the waterfront redevelopment when funding is secured and the economic conditions improve.

This marina will be sculpted from inside an idled giant wastewater treatment lagoon, adjacent to  Bellingham's central waterfront.

The new downtown marina will be the heart of the Waterfront District redevelopment and will have widespread economic, environmental, and community benefits. The marina will help revitalize the waterfront by:
  • Creating jobs and business opportunities 
  • Enhancing connections to downtown
  • Providing extensive new parks and public access 
  • Restoring critical salmon habitats
