About the Boat Ramp
Operated by the City of Mukilteo, the Lighthouse Park boat launch is located at the northwest side of the park on Elliott Point on Possession Bay. Three to four boats can launch at this site at one time, depending on the size of the boats.

*Use caution on floating docks. They can be dangerous in windy and high wave conditions.
No Public Pumpout or Porta-Potty Dump Station at this Boat Launch
It is illegal to discharge untreated sewage anywhere within the three-mile territorial limit of the United States. In Washington, this includes all of Puget Sound. Use of US Coast Guard approved Type I and Type II Marine Sanitation Devices is permitted; however, these do not treat waste to the same standard as land-based treatment. Please avoid use of these devices in shallow water, near shellfish beds and in marina basins.
The best option is to use a holding tank or porta-potty, also known as Type III MSDs.
The nearest public pumpouts and porta-potty dump stations are:
Port of Everett Marine, 425.259.6001
Port of Everett Boat Ramp, 425.259.6001
Port of Edmonds Marina, 425.774.0549
These pump outs are free of charge, open 24 hours/day.
A species-appropriate license is required for each person 15 years of age and older; licenses are available at sporting goods stores or go to www.fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov to purchase a license online.
