Destination: La Connor, WA
The La Conner Marina is a premier destination for recreational
boaters, commercial fishers and marine-related businesses.
Located at the north end of charming downtown La Conner, the
marina is a clean, service-oriented facility that tourists and La
Conner residents alike enjoy visiting. Plus, it's an easy two-hour
cruise from the marina into the heart of the beautiful San Juan
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is one of the destination events for the Pacific
Northwest. Every spring hundreds of thousands of people come to enjoy the
celebration of spring as millions of tulips burst into bloom. The tulips allow us to
share our corner of the world and help us to showcase Skagit Valley agriculture.
The Port of Skagit, which owns and operates the marina, completed
construction of its two boat basins in 1978. Today, the La Conner Marina
features 366 covered moorage slips, 131 open moorage slips plus 2,400
lineal feet of dock space for overnight moorage. The port added dry boat
storage and commercial boat moorage spaces after that. Various
marine-industry businesses also are located at the marina, including boat
building, sales, service and repair. The marina averages about 3,000
overnight boat visits per year, based on a recent local survey that found
boaters in guest moorage.
As the festival continues on its journey - now for 28 years -
we welcome people from across the United States and from
around the world. The beauty of the flowers truly transcends
differences, bringing cultures, ages and diverse lifestyles
together to marvel at nature's creation.
