Swantown MarinaA new fuel dock is scheduled to be built in Olympia, Washington’s Swantown Marina nestled with walking distance from the heart of downtown. Although an exact date of operation has not been announced, the announcement is welcomed by boaters who had their eyes on the fuel gauge for their South Sound trips. Olympia-bound boaters traditionally had to commute to nearby locations like the Port Plaza Guest Dock to top off the tanks.

The Swantown Marina in Budd Inlet is a popular choice for boaters visiting Olympia and cruising the South Sound. While slips are typically available on a first-come, first-served basis, the marina recommends calling ahead for busy summer weekends. You can learn more about the marina at portolympia.com or call at 360-528-8049.

Olympia itself has many unique attractions ranging from the Olympia Farmers Market, Hands on Children Museum, Wet Science Center, walking trails, waterfront restaurants, and much more. If you haven’t yet checked out Washington’s Capitol building by water, it better be on your bucket list. Check out experienceolympia.com to see what events are on their calendar.
