Bainbridge Island and Kitsap Peninsula Tour
Bainbridge Island and Kitsap are just a small part of the island system that sits outside Seattle in the Puget Sound and surrounding areas. These locations are often private homes, or they are public lands. These public lands are lovely places to tour, and this tour takes you through places that help you learn about the rich history of this place.
There are many people who come through these places because they want to see how beautiful the area is when it is outside the city. The islands are nice to look out, and you must use the tour as a way to learn how these islands were settled and developed over time.
The tour guide knows this place better than any other, and it is one that you must visit routinely because it helps you get away from the city and relax. There is enough quiet that you will also feel at home, and you must ask the tour guide if there are places you should visit when the tour is over.
Get your tickets online before showing up to the tour, and you will get a time that is best for you and the family. This is a great place for you to learn about Seattle, and you must have the family come with you so they can see how lovely this place.
There are many people on these tours every day, and that makes it much easier for you to have fun in the Seattle area without spending all your time in the city or shopping. Seattle is much more complex when you leave the shore.
For an easy getaway from Seattle, spend a day exploring Bainbridge Island and the adjacent Kitsap Peninsula! Simply take a convenient, scenic and inexpensive (less than $8 per person) ferry ride from Seattle to historic Bainbridge Island, and then meet your local guide at the ferry terminal. On a luxury minibus, venture through the picturesque Bainbridge Island on your way to the communities of Suquamish, Poulsbo and Port Gamble on the Kitsap Peninsula. Here, you'll discover Native American history, enjoy the New England-inspired atmosphere and do some shopping.
Bainbridge Island and the adjacent Kitsap Peninsula are two of the Seattle area's most enjoyable day trip destinations. Explore them on this six-hour tour that starts at the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal.
Make your own way to Bainbridge on an easy and inexpensive ferry ride from Seattle (it is recommended you catch the 9:35am ferry from Seattle to make the 10:10am tour start time). After the 30-minute ferry ride across Puget Sound (an experience itself!), meet your local guide at the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal.
Enjoy scenic vistas in every direction from the moment you depart Seattle until the moment you return. From the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal, travel by luxury minibus to the Kitsap Peninsula via the Agate Pass Bridge. Your first stop on the Kitsap Peninsula is the sleepy town of Suquamish - once home to Chief Seattle and now home to the Suquamish Tribe. Visit Chief Seattle's grave and the Suquamish Museum to learn about the history of the tribe.
From Suquamish, hug Liberty Bay all the way 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 explore.
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.
The return ferry to Seattle is free; spend the rest of your day as you wish! Take the ferry straight back to spend your evening in Seattle; visit the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort; or even spend the night at a bed and breakfast on the island - the choice is yours.
