Swantown Marina

1022 Marine Drive NorthEast
Olympia, WA 98501


In 1995, East Bay Marina’s name was changed to Swantown Marina to reflect historical significant of John Swan, an early pioneer that founded the area around the marina and to offer a branding identification to assist with marketing of the business.

By 1996, occupancy in many slip sizes at the marina had reach 100% utilization and business pressures mounted to construct a boatyard at Swantown. In March 1999, Swantown Boatworks opened. This environmentally friendly, boat haulout, maintenance and storage facility offered a do-it-yourself boatyard geared towards the areas recreational boating population. Within two years a marine services building was constructed at the boatyard and a thriving boat repair industry was born in Olympia.
