A quintessential part of Seattle, ferrying is a culture and way of life to its residents with many commuting to work across the Union Lake and Elliot Bay areas. If possible, try to plan sight-seeing of the city around several ferry trips going from point to point, allowing for maximum sightseeing. Trips to local attractions like the San Juan Islands and Victoria in nearby Canada are on offer. But be sure to remember a passport and any other necessary and valid travel documents before embarking on a ferry ride to Victoria.
