Grays Harbor is located in Grays Harbor County, WA. It is situated in Southwest, Washington, about 45 miles north of the Columbia River and just 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The County seat of Grays Harbor is Montesano, and the largest city is Aberdeen, known as the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula.

Grays Harbor’s port has grown rapidly in the past decade. While timber logs remain a staple, the port moves tons of dry bulk goods like grain and soybeans. Grays Harbor is now the leading exporter of soybeans in the U.S. The twin deep water berths are ideal for “RoRo” ships designed to have automobiles “ride on” and “ride off”. It is also the number on seafood landing port in Washington State. A recently expanded railway system moves cargo unloaded from the ships inland.

With so much commerce dependent upon terminal operations of Grays Harbor, county authorities have made the safe operation and maintenance of its ports a top priority while the port continues to grow.
