Friday Freebie: Seattle Wooden Boat Rides

Here’s a freebie I’ve been sitting on for awhile:

The Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle offers free boat rides every Sunday from 2-3 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made in person only at the Center’s front desk.

Also Sundays, starting at 1 p.m., visitors are invited to work on a 37-foot log canoe with Sāādūūts, CWB’s Artist-in-Residence and a Master Haida carver. Participation is open to all and is also free.

There’s no need to worry that you’ll be bored if you come early to reserve your space; besides carving, there are numerous boats at the Maritime Heritage Museum for you to explore. The Museum opens at 10 a.m. everyday and admission is free.

The Center is easily accessible by public transportation. Find all the information about getting there, times and other scheduled events here.

Thanks to Intelligent Travel for the tip!
