Seattle for boating, sailing and fishing
Water and boating based activities abound in Seattle. Where do we start... How about with the Seattle Boat Show held yearly at Quest Field. The show is populated with over a thousand boats of all shapes, kinds and sizes. This has been an annual Seattle event for over 50 years. Next we have the Lake Union Boats Afloat Show. This show makes available a wide selection of water craft – all afloat in Seattle’s Lake Union. The show typically extends from the Center for Wooden Boats to the Yale Street Landing. In Seattle, even the opening day of boating season is an event! Every year, on the first Saturday in May, since 1913, thousands of onlookers line the shoreline of the Montlake Cut to celebrate the official opening day of Seattle’s boating season. A Parade of Boats is launched with a resounding canon blast and the opening of the Montlake Bridge. Hundreds of sailboats and motor boats parade through with the boat crews dressed in full in accordance of the current years parade theme.
