Reviews for Foss Waterway Seaport
Foss Waterway Public Dock, 2011-10-27
Captain: , Chinook Landing Marina, Tacoma (315)

The facilities are great but when we tried to use the dock there were 6 or so people fishing including using crabpots right off the dock making it impossible to use any of the 100' pluse dock.



Nice, open to wakes, 2010-12-25
Captain: , Sequim, WA (676)

Nice new docks. It was close to a craft beer festival when we visited. Lots to do nearby. Don't miss the glass museum.



Nice place to stay, 2010-10-11
Captain: , Kenmore, WA (948)

We spent one night here and visited the interesting nautical museum and boat shop. Tie up on the South end. We walked down the waterfront to restaurants, and up past the glass museum to downtown Tacoma and Starbucks. There is free short-term moorage further down the waterway that you can make a day trip to if you want to do less walking. The dock is wide and clean, but there's no security - lock your boat when you leave. There's a pleasant bar/cafe just above the dock.
