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.

WHAT'S HAPPENING BELOW?

This video identifies species you are likely to find swimming in the waters beneath your feet along Seattle’s downtown waterfront.  Notice the glass pavers as you walk along the promenade – these were selected to let light into the water below.

Seasons are one of the greatest things about Seattle. Imagine the boredom of living in Hawaii with monotonous seasons and tides that barely vary:-) Check out this draft Seattle Seasons chart! All input, additions, corrections welcome. What seasons would you add?

|Has Spring Sprung?|

Ivar's has been a fixture on Seattle's waterfront since 1938! Over the years, the company and its customers have expressed their creativity in many ways. In all that time, never has Spring in Seattle sprung so late as in 2022. It appears the wait is over, fingers crossed:-)

Dine above the water in one of Seattle's most iconic and beloved establishments. Acres of Clams is on Pier 54 next to the fireboats. The full service restaurant and lounge overlook the Puget Sound and the Olympics with unparalleled views of the maritime action all around. Great food, views, and service. Open daily for lunch and dinner. Details at www.ivars.com/acresKeep the Ivar's love growing. 🌱❤️️ A few of our Ivar's customers have started taking their cups home to use as the perfect growing containers for the second stage of their tomato starts! #IvarsFullCircle

|New Pier 58 Construction to Start this Year|

Congratulations to Seattle's own Pacific Pile & Marine, selected by the city's Office of the Waterfront and Civic Projects to build the new Pier 58. Construction should begin this year. Impact on traffic is expected to be light because much of the work can be done from barges and materials can be brought in by the water too.

Pier 58 splashed down into the water after it started leaning over in 2020.

|Something old, something new...|

Love is in the air and Seattle's evolving waterfront remains a favorite destination for brides and grooms where they can find "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue". The tradition of uniting on the waterfront is old, Pier 62 is new, time and place are borrowed, and the water is blue. Walk to the end of any pier with public access and you will discover the magic of the Sea in Seattle.

Maybe summer is…dare I say…actually here? Well, it’s probably not. But this weekend has been close enough.

We are a 5 minute walk away from the ferry terminals, so why not hop over the water and spend the day on Bainbridge Island. Go on a hike, eat some delicious seafood, or treat yourself to some retail therapy.
