Our mission is to increase the economic opportunity for all of Kitsap County by generating jobs, developing infrastructure and improving local quality of life. We are a regional leader in creating economic and recreational opportunities for our community. We support a sustainable local economy through strategic public investments and stewardship of our natural environment.
Imagine a community where our people can drive to work, come home to their family, and enjoy a quality of life all within the same area they live. Our community and the Port share a common vision of the future. The Port’s role in that future is to build, operate and maintain world-class facilities providing recreation and economic development opportunities for aviation, marine and business. We strive for an abundance of sustainable jobs, a healthy environment, and access to recreational opportunities, which all contribute to the quality of life that is unique to Kitsap County - where quality of life and economic opportunity are in balance.
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.

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.
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.
