Port Townsend Marine Science Center Summer Camps return this year with week-long adventures right at the beach in Fort Worden State Park.

In 2021 when the Port Townsend Marine Science Center purchased the Flagship Landing Building downtown, not only did we acquire the perfect location for a Visitor Center and store, but we also got to form a working relationship with Flagship Landing’s many wonderful tenants.
To introduce you to this diverse group of businesses, we’re adding a new feature to the Octopress called Flagship Corner. In each issue, we'll showcase one of our fellow Flagship occupants. We think of these establishments as our community partners, a wonderful addition to our growing PTMSC family. And when you support them, you are in turn supporting the PTMSC and its mission.
