OUR MISSION

Provide public access to, and promote safe and responsible use of
the marine resources of the Puget Sound.

To develop, expand, and diversify the Port of Brownsville economy and create jobs.

 

The Port of Brownsville Marina has all the amenities of a large marina but with the charm, peacefulness and rustic setting of a small rural community.

The first Brownsville dock was built in 1901 by community donated work and continued to be kept up by community effort until the Brownsville Port District was formed 7 April 1920 by special election. Brownsville Port District is what is known as an Independent “Special District.” State law defines a special district as “any agency of the state for the local performance of governmental or proprietary functions within limited boundaries.” A special district is a separate local government that delivers public services.

Brownsville is located on the Port Orchard Bay half way between Bremerton and Poulsbo making it a convenient place to visit or stay. The Port facility offers both guest and permanent moorager’s excellent parking, fuel, large boat ramps, electrical and water hook-ups at all moorage sites.

2023 Moorage Rates

At the November 16, 2022, Commission Meeting the Commission of the Port of Brownsville officially adopted the Tariff for the year of 2023. These new rates are set to go into effect on January 1, 2023. The monthly cost for moorage will be increasing by about 9% over the 2022 rate. You can find the new cost of your moorage at the “2023 Moorage Rates by Slip Size” link below. All rates listed include all associated taxes, utilities, and flat fees, but do not include other items such as the Denizen fee.

All rates calculated are as close to the final amounts as possible, but there may be small differences of a few cents.
