The Tacoma Maritime Fest is the only annual celebration of Tacoma’s most important asset: its waterfront. Join us at this free, all-ages event and be part of this valued maritime tradition that honors Tacoma’s rich maritime history, the trades that defined its past, and the activities and industry that shape it now.
Coastal Heritage Alliance staff and volunteers will be providing guided dockside tours of F/V Commencement at this year’s Tacoma Maritime Fest. This family friendly activity is a hands-on experience.
Enter the world of the fisherman as you explore the galley, venture below decks into the engine room, feel the spokes of the large wooden helm wheel, and imagine sleeping in the restored fish hold.
Commencement tours are always free, but donations are kindly accepted.
