This used to be a more interesting place when they were actually making boats there, but it still has a good store and the best coffee shop in P.T.

We saw some boats being finished after school kids had started it. There really wasn't much to see here. We were disappointed at no one being around, etc.

My husband and I took a sailing class offered by the Northwest Maritime Center and loved it. The teaching staff were superb, the boats well-maintained and just right for the class.

What a wonderful day to show off the Fort! Educational offerings, and friendly staff. The opportunity to hand feed sea creatures was a special treat. Amazing to be able to see the octopus chomp on food! Near so many other activities.

The NWMC is a project of love in this Victorian Seaport, built through community fundraising, rants, and government contributions. Upon entry, the first thing you see is the Chandelry, a marine hardware store specializing in Wooden Boats, but also with marine themed tourist items. Past the Chandelry is the Velocity Coffee Shop, then the outdoor work area and pier. The... More
