Located on Harbor Avenue and Maryland Street south of the Duwamish Head, Don Armeni is the most popular of Seattle's saltwater boat ramps. Don Armeni's close proximity to many favorite fishing spots on the south end of Marine Area 10 and the other south Marine Areas makes it a popular ramp for fishers during salmon season. Another attraction is the view. From across Elliott Bay the Seattle waterfront looks spectacular, making Don Armeni a popular spot for ceremonies, photographers, and sightseers.

Acreage: 4.8


Don Armeni was most recently remodeled and expanded in 1984. Enhancements included paving the parking lot, creation of the view point and other cosmetic improvements. Additionally, an electronic fee machine was installed in 1996 making payment of the boat launch fee faster and easier than ever. The machine will accept coins or bills ($1, $5, $10 & $20), and issue a dated ticket. The machine will not provide change.
