Port Townsend Bay Tours 2024

Event description

Explore Port Townsend from the water as you cruise around Port Townsend Bay aboard our comfortable catamaran, Admiral Jack. While our knowledgeable crew shares the history of our charming village-by-the-sea, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the seafaring wildlife that inhabits our coastal waters and indulge in views of the Olympic and Cascade mountains. Tours are one hour in length—a great summer activity for all ages!

Please purchase your ticket online in advance to ensure your spot on the tour. Walk-up availability may be limited; last-minute tickets can be purchased in the Welcome Center, located at 431 Water St, Port Townsend, if space allows. Kids age 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
