Foss Waterway Seaport

At Foss Waterway Seaport, we are creating a sustainable maritime heritage project that provides quality public access, compelling educational programming and exciting on-water recreational amenities.

Financial support from the community is vital to our success. Your financial support provides resources for exhibits, marine and environmental education programs, and dozens of daily activities. Please consider making a gift today and if you are not a member, consider joining or renewing your current membership today. 

The Foss Waterway Seaport Board has contributed over $2 million, and numerous individuals in the community have combined contributions totaling over $1 million.

We invite you to be part of this exciting opportunity to transform the waterfront into a legacy for our community. Please join us in creating the Foss Waterway Seaport and celebrate Tacoma's maritime heritage—past, present and future.
