Waterfront Place, formerly known as the Marina District, stretches from 10th Street to 18th Street along West Marine View Drive. The District is home to the Port of Everett Marina, the largest public marina on the West Coast, as well as a variety of businesses ranging from restaurants to marine-related retail and repair.
Waterfront Place Central Development
The Port of Everett’s Waterfront Place Central Development project is more than just a large scale real estate venture. The intent of the project is to unify the marina and surrounding property as one economic unit to create a sustainable and unique commercial, recreation and residential community. This new community is pedestrian-oriented and takes full advantage of its attractive waterfront and recreational boating setting. It also supports the final phases of the Port’s state-of-the-art regional boat sales and services center in the state’s largest marina.
Waterfront Center is a newly remodeled and expanded mixed-use building that offers 76,000 square feet of space in the heart of the marina district, known as Waterfront Place. The building houses the Port of Everett Administration and Marina offices, Everett Community College ORCA Program, ISIS Holdings, Scuttlebutt Brewing Company, Seas the Day Café, ArrowCat Marine, Bluewater Distillery, B&B Marine Services, Tom's Marine Electrical, Marine Power Services, Everett Yacht Service and Repair and Eagle Home Mortgage.
Everett Yacht Club
The Everett Yacht Club is located at the end of 14th Street, stretching over the water. With weekly activities and exciting cruises, the Everett Yacht Club is a floating community.
Hat Island (A.K.A. Gedney Island) is a private island, located in Puget Sound, in Snohomish County Washington. The island is west of Everett, between Whidbey Island and Camano Island. The island is small, only 1.5 miles long by a .5 mile wide. There are about 260 homes on the island and about 600 buildable lots.
The Port’s Marina Village, located at 1728 W. Marine View Drive, was developed in 1984 and includes several restaurants and businesses that have beautiful waterfront views. These facilities are owned and operated by a developer that leases the property from the Port of Everett. Some of the restaurants and amenities include Anthony’s Homeport, Anthony's Woodfire Grill, Blue Mango Bistro, Whale Watching Tours, Everett Clinic, Water's Edge Salon and waterfront walkways.

Port of Everett Boat Launch
Jetty Landing Park and Boat Launch is located just five minutes from I-5 and provides quick and easy access to a boater’s paradise. The Port of Everett’s public boat launch is ideally located to go anywhere on the North Puget Sound, especially the San Juan Islands. The location and facilities are great for fishermen and crabbers wanting to take advantage of the area’s abundance.
The port-owned Jetty Island is a man-made island composed of sediment deposited by the Snohomish River. The Port of Everett gained ownership of Jetty Island in 1929 and, with the help of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, built a new marsh of dredged river materials in 1989.
The original dredged material is more than 100 years old and has been added to over time as the result of maintenance dredging of the Snohomish River Channel. Juvenile salmon, waterfowl and bald eagles are just a few examples of the wildlife currently living on Jetty Island. Continuous work is being done to improve and expand the island’s wildlife habitat.
Jetty Island is a jewel to all who visit its sandy beaches, a rarity in the Pacific Northwest. Visitors often speak of Jetty Island’s untouched natural beauty. With no electricity or plumbing, the only structure on the island is the seasonal floating restroom off its shores. The sandy beaches and shallow waters make the water warm enough for any swimmer to enjoy. Set up your beach towels, bring your bucket and shovel to play in the sand and be prepared for the perfect day at the beach. The extreme sport kiteboarding is growing in popularity and many athletes travel from outside the area to kiteboard at Jetty Island.
