The Seattle Martime Festival is being held at Fishermen’s Terminal this week. Free fun and educational events for the entire family.
Friday, May 10th is a guided walking tour of the terminal from 10:30 am to noon. You have to RSVP for this since the number of participants is limited.
Saturday, May 11th is the Family Fun Day from 11 am to 4 pm. The fun day is actually held at the Maritime Academy located on the Ballard side of the bridge. Events range from free Argosy tours, to a boat piloting simulator, to knot tying.

Fishermen’s Terminal in Seattle (which I have already previewed) is a great place to go if you love looking at boats. While fishing boats fill most of the docks you can also find pleasure craft of all sorts, small cruise vessels, fire boats, and so on. You’ll see both the very modern and the very traditional.
For people who enjoy both boats and photography, Fishermen’s Terminal becomes a vast nautical themed playground for you and your camera.
Last week I posted my preview for Fishermen’s Terminal. One of the annual events held there is the upcoming Fishermen’s Fall Festival, and it looks like a lot of fun. This year it will take place on Saturday, September 24th from 11 am to 6 pm.
