  • Visited the old location while the new building is almost finished. Nice examples inside, but not as many as I had hoped to see. I guess the main attraction here is the Sunday sail. Perhaps another ti...  more »
  • The center offers free boat rides on Sunday (first come first serve, and there is a donation box). We got there early on Sunday with coffee and waited patiently until we made it inside to get our name...  more »

  • Wonderful little center. They provide free boat rides every Sunday morning and the staff is very knowledgeable about the variety of boats that they have. If I lived in the area, I would definitely take lessons with these folks to learn how to sail!
  • When the lures are activated, it's the best place to Catch 'em All. Very popular during lunch time for that reason. EDIT: With schools in Seattle resuming and the weather looking a little less sunny, the popularity drop has been very steep the last two weeks. It's still a fun place to walk through.
  • This is a touchable musume. You can even take a ride on a 114 year old Gillnetter sailboat. The best time to visit is on Sundays (all year round) for they offer free rides on some of their vessels. During the summer months, it's best to show up early to get a seat. The docks are always open just for a stroll or read a book. There are sailboats you can rent and lessons for children and adults. You can even rent a rowboat with no experience. If you have some spare time, there are plenty of volunteer positions. You can even earn free rental hours.
  • Loved getting to see inside of the different boats! I especially loved the house boat! :)
  • A great place to rent a boat/kayak, see the city from the waterfront, and by far the best place in the city to catch water based Pokemon...
