Port of Everett, Project Partners Dedicate Port's NEW Mukilteo Fishing Pier and Guest Moorage Dock
Yesterday, the Port of Everett, together with project partners City of Mukilteo and Washington State Ferries, dedicated the Port’s new Mukilteo Fishing Pier and Guest Moorage Dock in a ribbon-cutting ceremony joined by community leaders and the public.
The event kicked off with a tribal blessing and prayer of the new facility by Thomas Williams of Tulalip Tribes, followed by remarks from Port of Everett Commission President Tom Stiger, Port CEO Lisa Lefeber, City of Mukilteo Mayor Gregerson, Washington State Ferries Chief of Staff Nicole McIntosh and the Port’s Chief of Marina Operations Jeff Lindhout.

Opening this facility represents the continuation of the Port’s more than century long commitment of providing public access at the Everett and Mukilteo waterfronts to connect Port District residents and visitors to the water.
Located adjacent to the new Mukilteo Ferry Terminal, the new public access pier offers a nearly 2,000 square foot pier for recreation, including fishing, crabbing and sightseeing, and connects to a new, 30-foot long by 8-foot wide guest moorage dock offering 60 lineal feet of side tie moorage. A new 80-foot, ADA-compliant aluminum gangway attaches from the guest dock to the pier providing direct access into Mukilteo’s walkable waterfront.
The facility was reconstructed in partnership with Washington State Ferries and contractor Manson Construction to replace the Port’s previous pier located south of Ivar’s that was demolished as part of the new Mukilteo Ferry Terminal rebuild project.
