Seattle Waterfront: Live View
WATERFRONT BRIEFS: May 2022
Spring is here and events are back; waterfront restaurants, shops, and attractions are open. Sunday, May 8, is Mother’s Day, so come on down with Mom! Recreational sailing and boating operations are open. One day and half-day whale watching trips from Seattle’s waterfront are also running this month. Expect to see Alaska-bound cruise ships regularly at Pier 66 this month.
The piers are open, boats are sailing! Start your day on the waterfront with a walk or run. Starbucks opens at 6AM on Pier 55 (don’t miss the new gallery next door).
Spend time exploring, walking, whale watching, shopping, taking pictures, and eating. Catch the last ride of the day on the Seattle Great Wheel at 10PM (11PM on Fridays and Saturdays).
Seattle Aquarium hours are 9:30AM to 6:00PM daily (last entry at 5:00PM). Advance ticket purchase online is convenient – secure your time window and skip the line. For the best deal and unlimited visits year-round ($79), become a Seattle Aquarium member.
Between the start and end of May, Seattle day length will climb to nearly 15.4 hours of daylight per day. Let the good times roll!
