What You Can Expect

Seattle Shore Excursion: Bainbridge Island and Kitsap Peninsula Tour

Electric Boat Ride, Poulsbo

When your cruise ship docks at the Seattle port, take an easy 15-minute walk to Pier 66 to board the ferry (own expense). Enjoy scenic views of the Seattle skyline and the Cascade Mountains as you travel along Puget Sound to Bainbridge Island.

When you arrive at the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal, you'll be greeted by your guide. Hop aboard a luxury mini-coach and head to the Kitsap Peninsula via the Agate Pass Bridge. Your first stop is the quiet town of Suquamish, now home to the Suquamish Tribe and once home to Chief Seattle, an 18th-century native tribe leader who the city of Seattle was named after. Visit Chief Seattle’s grave and the Suquamish Museum to learn about the fascinating history of the tribe.

From Suquamish, travel along Liberty Bay to your next stop, Poulsbo, a quaint village founded by Norwegian fishers and farmers. The extended stop here is a great time to do some shopping, grab lunch (own expense) or walk around on your own.

Your final stop is the New England-inspired village of Port Gamble on the northern part of the peninsula. Here, you can visit the Shell Museum or the Port Gamble Historic Museum, or enjoy some free time to explore at your leisure.

The return ferry is free, and you can hop on anytime you like to head back to Seattle.

This tour was great. The tour is operated by a husband and wife, and they did a fantastic job. Both are incredibly knowledgable about the area, and they make the tour very interesting. They also had a lot of very good recommendations on places to eat or places to visit at stops along the way. They definitely made the trip well worth it. I would highly recommend this excursion if you are visiting Seattle.
