Humble Beginnings in 1913+

The Port of Bremerton is the 4th oldest port in the State of Washington and the first of many in Kitsap County.

As the story has been passed down through generations, it is said that the city of Bremerton had inadvertently built portions of its wharf, an important commercial and transportation hub, over privately-owned tidelands. The property owner's threatened lawsuit prompted a signature-gathering campaign by citizens to put the formation of a port district within the city of Bremerton's boundaries on the ballot in the hopes of resolving the dispute.

Location & Directions+

Port of Bremerton is located in western Washington State

The Port of Bremerton is located at 8850 SW State Hwy 3, Bremerton, WA, in the Puget Sound region of western Washington State, U.S. (You'll turn at the stoplight to get there.)

The Port provides a spectacular natural setting along with the affordability of the Kitsap Peninsula and is centrally located within a short commuting distance to the urban centers of Seattle and Tacoma.

Easy access to interstate highway, rail, and deepwater ports make this an ideal, affordable business and family location.

Celebrating 100 years of achievement in 2013+

The next 100 years the Port pledges to continue to leverage every tax dollar the Port receives through wise investment in job-generating facilities, infrastructure, and programs, and continue its collaboration with public and private partners in the interest of long-term economic and recreational benefits shared throughout Kitsap County and the West Puget Sound region.
