Welcome to the Port of Ilwaco
Located on the Southwest coast of Washington, the Port of Ilwaco is nestled just inside the Columbia River bar. A working fishing village in a scenic and tranquil setting. Our 800-slip marina is idyllic for both recreational boaters and commercial fishermen alike. There is guest moorage available year round, as well as a back in launch, two small boat hoists and two fuel docks. Additionally, the Port of Ilwaco has a 50-ton travelift, a self/full service work yard and dry boat storage facilities.
Our marina waterfront has modern shower facilities for tenants only. We also have a Pavilion available for public use. Restaurants, lodging, gift shops, galleries, retail seafood outlets, a barista and a bookstore are just a few of the local attractions. The Lewis and Clark Discovery Trail is part of our waterfront walkway. The Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum, a small grocery, laundry service, post office, banks and more are all within walking distance of the Port. Public transportation and taxi service is available for those who wish to explore the beauty and attractions the entire Long Beach Peninsula has to offer.
Don’t forget that the Port hosts Special Events throughout the year such as the popular Saturday Market, the Loyalty Day Children’s Parade, the Blessing of the Fleet and the annual Fireworks spectacular, just to name a few. Be sure to include Ilwaco on your vacation itinerary.
