Puget Sound Tips (4)

Puget Sound!

Puget Sound is a large salt water system of many estuaries, fed by highly seasonal freshwater from the Olympic and Cascade Mountain watersheds. The northern boundary is Admiralty Inlet, between Point Partridge on Whidbey Island and Point Wilson on the Olympic Peninsula. A second entrance is Deception Pass, between West Point on Whidbey Island and Rosario Head on Fidalgo Island

Seattle, the state's largest city, lies in the center of the Puget Sound region and sits between Elliot Bay and Lake Washington. Across the Sound is Bainbridge Island, the Kitsap Peninsula and Olympic Peninsula. To the east, and across Lake Washington, is Seattle's near neighbor Bellevue. The Puget Sound area offers a rich variety of vacation, recreational and holiday pursuits including big-city life, island retreats, cozy bed and breakfasts, romantic country inns and first class resorts. There is plenty of sightseeing, hiking, kayaking, and boating activities to keep in shape and make one wish for a longer Puget Sound holiday.

Puget Sound & Elliott Bay

Puget Sound was named after Lieutenant Peter Puget, who explored its southern end in 1792. It is considered a salt water estuary fed by rivers and streams from the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. The Puget sound region is home to the majority of the residents of the state of Washington. This area includes interconnected channels, inlets, estuaries, bays, and islands that connect Seattle to Olympia, Everett, Tacoma, and other smaller cities in the region.

Elliott Bay is part of Puget Sound and it borders downtown Seattle between Alki Point and West Point. The port of Seattle--America's 9th busiest port, and the city's main ferry terminals are located along the bay.

Cruising on the Puget Sound

A good way to take in the sights of the Puget Sound is to go on a cruise. Argosy Cruises operates regular harbour cruises departing from Pier 55 at Seattle's historic waterfront. A one-hour cruise gives you spectacular views of the Seattle skyline and the Olympic mountains on a clear day. On the day I took the cruise, it was an overcast and foggy day so I did not get to see the mountains. Still, it was a great experience and a good way to experience the beauty of the Puget Sound.
If you take a tour of Tillicum Village, it would include a 30-minute cruise to Blake Island.

Puget Sound

Puget Sound is an attraction in itself given its proximity to downtown Seattle and all of the waterfront actvities along its shore. The waterfront area is teeming with restaurants and shops. On a clear summer day or evening, this is simply a great place for a stroll. Its also a great place to catch a view of the Olympic Mountains in the distance.
