The Seattle Ferry
Being surrounded by water brings even more activities to the table when visiting Seattle. While you may not be looking to jump into the chilly water, you can stay dry and enjoy a ride on the Seattle ferry. There are multiple boats that will bring you to different locations. We recommend taking a ferry across Elliot Bay to Bremerton (and stopping by The Reef while you’re around.)

This is also where the Space Needle is located.
