Since 1993, the City of Federal Way has owned and operated Dumas Bay Centre, a full-service conference and retreat facility. Dumas Bay Centre can accommodate a wide variety of events including conferences; meetings and banquets; overnight retreats; weddings, receptions, and other special occasions. Guests are able to experience the tranquility and natural beauty of Puget Sound overlooking the Olympic Mountains while being close to major metropolitan areas. The Centre is a short drive from both Seattle and Tacoma, and is less than 25 miles from SeaTac airport. The central location of the Centre provides an ideal year-round escape for business conferences or retreat groups that need privacy and tranquility at a nearby destination.
