Begin your 2-hour, Mid-Day Cruise aboard the Rainbird at centrally located Pocock Rowing Center, adjacent to Portage Bay Park featuring easy access and ample parking. Depart amid floating homes, and all manner of watercraft ranging from canoes, sailboats, classic wooden boats, motor boats, to mega yachts and float planes. Enjoy a fully narrated tour of Seattle’s iconic sights such as Gasworks Park, Space Needle, Historic Ballard Fishing Community, UW Husky Stadium, and Majestic Mt Rainier.
