"Crusing the inner harbour on a very foggy day"

The waterfront cruise was included in my CityPASS Seattle booklet. Having experienced a few stunning days of clear and sunny weather, my mid-morning cruise started in unmistakable clammy fog. But everyone appeared to be relatively good cheer and made the best of the situation. Seattle's waterfront might not be the most famous in the world but it is a good size, and signs of trade and activity were quite evident. Crude oil tankers, grain carriers, container ships, Coast Guard cutters, the Bainbridge Island ferry, and tug boats were all represented. Some of the local wildlife were also out - we saw some seals and gulls but unfortunately no whales although the latter are known to be sighted from time to time. The nice thing about the cruise was that, despite the reduced visibility, our guide kept up a running commentary that was both interesting and educational.

Great 1 hr quick tour of the sound and businesses on the waterfront! You get to see Seattle from a great perspective. Ive done it twice and would do it again. Great thing to do with visitors for locals. Hit Pike, the Aquarium, and Argosy for a perfect Seattle Tourist day.
