Funny, one of my all time favorite Seattle Activities was on the various boats you can take, that have lunch, dinner, and other fun activity cruises. My all-time favorite cruise was the harbor cruise (went on that two or three times) that left from downtown Seattle and wandered around the Puget Sound. You saw Seattle from the water side. I enjoyed that cruise and the images shared of from the very first time I had an opportunity to be on the longer of the two cruises (this one goes all around the Seattle Harbor).
The food was ok, not anything that I would post a Yelp review of, but the overall cruise experience was amazing. Plus I got to hang out with some of my favorite folks and have a couple of beers. The only thing that would have made this a perfect cruise was the ability to smoke a cigar top side (you could smoke cigarettes on the top side, but no cigars).
There are three or four iterations (lengths) of the cruise. Over the years I went on three (really long, long and nowhere near long enough) of the four cruises. I also took the ferry to the San Juan islands and enjoyed wandering the islands as well. We did a whale watching cruise one year that was also amazing. Overall Seattle is a fun city, great restaurants and a lot of really cool activities. I realized, as I started this series (over the past two days) that I miss heading out to Seattle from time to time.
