The Seattle Waterfront

Seattle's  Waterfront
Seattle's Waterfront

Seattle's natural deep-water harbor, Elliott Bay, teems with trade, ferry boats, luxury cruise liners, sightseeing tour boats and myriad pleasure craft. Prime harbor views can be found on the city's central waterfront, stretching along Alaskan Way from Pier 70 on the north to Pier 48 on the south. Midway, built atop Pier 59 is the Seattle Aquarium. The Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center at Pier 66 explores the busy bay beyond its doors. The pier is also home to the Bell Street Cruise Terminal, homeport for luxury cruise liners bound for Alaska's Inside Passage (a second cruise ship terminal at Pier 48).

At Pier 55 and 56, Argosy Cruises features decidedly smaller vessels for sightseeing trips and evening dinner cruises. Also departing from Pier 55, Tillicum Village offers a scenic boat trip to nearby Blake Island for a Northwest Coast Native American stage show. The Seattle Waterfront also features souvenir and gift shops and an array of Northwest seafood dining.

A vintage trolley system connects the waterfront with Pioneer Square and the Chinatown-International District.
