The mission of the Foss Waterway Seaport is to celebrate Tacoma's rich maritime heritage—past, present and future.

The Foss Waterway Seaport is Puget Sound's premier maritime heritage, education and event center where families, students and entire communities come to discover, explore, work and play.

The development partners of this project—the Foss Waterway Seaport and the Foss Waterway Development Authority—are dedicated to creating a venue that will continue to bring the downtown waterfront to life as a place for everyone. When fully completed, the Seaport will be the most comprehensive maritime heritage and education center on the U.S. west coast, and the only authentic facility in the Pacific Northwest to showcase the region's maritime history in a location where that history actually took place!
