Cared for by the Garibaldi Cultural Heritage Initiative, this historic boathouse built in 1936 was used as a Coast Guard life-saving station to help ships and fishing boats in Tillamook Bay. The boathouse, undergoing a preservation effort, has a gallery of historic interpretive signage and photos, and offers a unique venue for special events. It is one of the most photographed buildings on the Oregon Coast, thanks to its long boardwalk pier where people cast fishing lines and crab pots.
