West Seattle Water Taxi & Colman Dock
Instead of driving, take the West Seattle water taxi for a quick visit to Alki Beach (bring a bike). It's an enjoyable ride and has great views of downtown Seattle.
Catch the passenger water taxi to Alki - drops off within walking distance to Salty's and Alki Beach.
Take this picturesque 10 minute ride across the sound to West Seattle for one of the best sunset views around of downtown. Eat dinner at the local favorite Marination Ma Kai right at the harbor before you return to Seattle.
A 15 minute boat ride to West Seattle. Taxi's run frequently across Elliot Bay. Disembark and enjoy a walk on the beach or lunch. Or just ride the taxi both ways.
The West Seattle Water Taxi is a fabulous way to get downtown like a local. It is $5.75 or $5.00 on a transit "orca" pass to take this 10 minute ride from Alki Beach to Downtown. It is also located next to one of my favorite restaurants, Marination Ma Kai.
Great way to get a view of the city on the cheap as you're coming back to West Seattle after a day of exploring the city!

“You can't come to Seattle and not visit Pike Place! They have beautiful flowers year round, fresh fish, live music, and lots of vendors. If you want to have a fish thrown over your head, just purchase any fish from the Pike Place Fish Market. ”
“Small local restaurant with a daily changing menu based off what they locally sourced that day/week ”
