The Port of Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, operating the Port, the Airport and Jackson's Beach


Welcome to the Port of Friday Harbor.

We are located in the San Juan Islands at the very northwest corner of Washington State. The Port of Friday Harbor is owned by the citizens of San Juan Island.  Our properties include the Marina, Friday Harbor Airport, and Jackson Beach and Boat Launch. These public facilities were developed by our community to provide for air and water transportation and recreation for our residents and visitors.

Our prime directive is to strive to maintain a healthy economy with family wage jobs, and to improve the social, economic and natural environments of the island. These pages are intended to give you information about Port facilities and activities.  Please contact us with any questions!

Latest News on the Spring Street Landing Building:

The Port Commission held a Special meeting the evening of March 17th to decide on the architectural design of the Spring Street Landing Building. The Port’s architect, Peter Brachvogel with BC & J Architects, presented to the public audience several roof profiles compared to the old Downrigger’s roof line. He pointed out that the new building’s perpendicular orientation to the street will provide improved views through the site. After listening to public comments and discussion amongst themselves, the Commission approved the building design that they believe meets the community’s desire for a traditional form. They further directed Mr. Brachvogel to return with drawings illustrating this decision for the Commission to review. Commissioner Chair Mike Ahrenius reiterated to the audience the Commission’s priorities for this project: improve pedestrian and public access to the waterfront, consideration of view corridors, and to recover the previous restaurant and retail space.

Computer-generated drawings are here: March 17, 2014 SSL Building Approved and SSL Building roof profile. Building materials such as siding and windows will be decided at a later date. The next step for the Port is to present this design to the Town’s Historic Preservation Review Board at their April meeting.
